Yes. Chris mentions Raccoon City being 10 years ago. Everyone's getting release date mixed up with timeline.
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. The game is a direct sequel to the Resident Evil series, and continues chronologically after Resident Evil 4. The player characters and protagonists are Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar, 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′s Ashley Graham.
