Why do people think that this game is a prequel to RE5?

No, it takes place in 2009. Read what I wrote...


Oh yeah. Sorry that I didn't notice.

RE5 takes place in 2009.

RE5 also came out in 2009.

It would also explain why Jill is completely missing from this game.

I don't know if it's just me, but Chris looks... Not necessarily younger, but a bit less worn out than in RE5 >.>

July 23, 1998.....................................Resident Evil 0
July 24, 1998.....................................Resident Evil 1/Remake
September, 1998...............................Resident Evil: Confidential Report
September 28, 1998..........................Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (up till Jill gets infected)
September 29, 1998..........................Resident Evil 2†
October 1st-2nd, 1998......................Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (after Jill recovers and Berry comes to help her escape the city)
November, 1998................................Resident Evil Survivor
December 27, 1998...........................Resident Evil Code: Veronica (& Survivor 2: CV)
Summer of 2002................................Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles ("Operation Javier" & "Darkness Falls" chapters)
September, 2002...............................Resident Evil Dead Aim
February, 2003..................................Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (the Russian Missions)
Autumn 2004.....................................Resident Evil 4
2005.............................................. .....Resident Evil: Revelations
November, 2005................................Resident Evil Degeneration
August, 2006......................................Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition ("Lost in Nightmares" scenario)
2008.............................................. ...Resident Evil 6
2009.............................................. .....Resident Evil 5
2009.............................................. .....Resident Evil 5 Viral Campaign

So I'm assuming Resident Evil 5 happens right after 6, which means there are chances that Wesker may appear, along with Tricell in RE6.

Yes. Chris mentions Raccoon City being 10 years ago. Everyone's getting release date mixed up with timeline.

It's not Alex Wesker, I wrote about this in this thread below, we've got to kill this theory before it spreads like a virus.

no jill mentions it was 8 years ago in lost in nightmares which takes place in 2007, chris never once mentioned that Raccoon incident was 10 years ago

RE4 Came out in 2005 and took place in 2004. (hence him saying 6 years have past since the incident) 1998-2004= 6 years

RE5 came out in 2009 and was stated by capcom before to take place in 2009. 1998-2009= 11 years.

Capcom has stated that RE6 takes place 10 years after Raccoon city. 1998-2008= 10 years

RE6= 2008, RE5= 2009 making RE6 from the trailer standpoint take place before RE5

If you can pause the trailer during a good view of chris his arms seem to be smaller then they are in RE5 possibly meaning he is still in the process of bulking toward his build in RE5. unless his arms shrunk for no reason >-<

Plus look at it this way.....why can't RE6 be a prequel to 5 when REvelations is set after 4 and before lost in nightmares and RE5?


(Edit) These are lines taken from the plots of both RE5 and RE6

RE5: Takeuchi added that the development team is composed of staff members who worked on the original Resident Evil.[3] The game is a direct sequel to the Resident Evil series,[3] and continues chronologically after Resident Evil 4.[13] The player characters and protagonists are Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar,[4] and the game takes place in 2009, eleven years after the events of the original Resident Evil.

RE6: Occurring 10 years after the events of the original game, Leonís story is centered around Tall Oaks, a city similar to Raccoon City that succumbs to a T-virus outbreak. Chrisí story takes place in China, while a third storyline revolves around an unidentified new character and Resident Evil 4&#8242;s Ashley Graham.
