Originally, Jill was intended as the main lead protagonist before Claire, this replacement was due to Hideki Kamiya altering the ending of the second game forcing scenario writer Noboru Sugimura to replace Jill with Claire. Jill later became the main lead in the third game.

The Chinese company SkyWalker Comics wrote a manhua adaptation of this game. In addition to a lot of hand-to-hand combat (Chris, Claire, and Steve each take out monsters using unarmed attacks) and some rather ridiculous shots (Claire kills multiple zombies with a single bullet), Chris is portrayed as being left-handed. The manhua also features a "flashback" of the first game, to recount Chris' last encounter with Wesker. This manhua was soon after localized by WildStorm comics.
