The 777 was designed to fill the huge gap between the 767-300 and the 747-400.
Initially (in 1986), this project was dubbed "7J7" and was a three-engined stretch of the 767.
But, already in the earliest phase of development the "possible" customers, which were involved in the design process, all wanted a complete new plane.
The 777-family started its life with three members (with some years between their births: 777-200 in spring 1994, the 777-200ER in fall 1996 and the 777-300 followed one year later).
The family has risen to six members with the development of the 777LRs (77L & 77W). Whereby the 77L had a rather complicated birth, because the development phase was iced for nearly a year due to the lack of interest. Then Boeing launched the project: 77F (first delivery in late 2008).
In early 2007 Boeing said, that if the A350 becomes a too great threat for the T7, further improvements for the T7 program is Top1 on their agenda, before going about a completely new planedesign. This could mean, that some features of the 787-program could be applied to the T7 for improving their overall economics and results in extending the 777's life.

In the 3rd quarter of 2013 Lufthansa surprised the media by comitting as the first airline, even before the program's formal launch, to the 777-X (20 orders and 14 options for the -9X).
