Resident Evil Celebrates 20 Years

20 years ago on March 22, 1996, Resident Evil burst onto the gaming scene. Since then the series has gone on to become one of the most successful gaming franchises of all time selling over 66 million copies worldwide. Hollywood feature film releases, merchandise, attractions and events across the globe reinforce the fact the series continues to infect the hearts of Survival Horror fans everywhere.

It is not often that a franchise enjoys such prolific success, with the series revolutionising the ‘survival horror’ genre, but there can be no doubt that the lasting and widespread popularity of Resident Evil is all thanks to the passionate support of gamers and Resident Evil fans. Thank you so much!

The 20th anniversary may have just begun, but the Resident Evil team is already hard at work to deliver some amazing new surprises. It's going to be an exciting year!

Thank you to all our Resident Evil fans!
