Resident Evil 2 introduced series favorites Leon and Claire. Where does RE2 fit in the RE series timeline?

  • RE 2 → RE 1 → RE 3


  • RE 1 → RE 2 → RE 3


  • RE 1 → RE 3 → RE 2


First let's look at A, "RE2 → RE1 → RE3."

The Mansion Incident occurred on July 24th, which was a full two months before the Raccoon City Incident. That puts RE1 first chronologically, so this is not the right answer!


The S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team arrived at the mansion on July 24th!


Next, let's take a look at B, "RE1 → RE2 → RE3."

RE3 was about Jill's escape from Raccoon City, which began on September 28th. However, Leon and Claire arrived in Raccoon City on September 29th...therefore, this is also not the correct answer!


Jill, preparing to leave Raccoon City. The date is September 28th.


That means that the correct answer is C, "RE1 → RE3 → RE2."

Even though its only by a day, RE3 does start before RE2. ...Does that make RE3 a prequel?


The rookie cop and university student arrived in Raccoon City on September 29th!
