Is this game set after RE5?

I don't think that's been stated yet.

Not confirmed yet but it wouldn't make any sense to set this before RE5.

Its 1 year before RE5

RE2: 1998
RE5: 2009

This game is set 10 years after RE2 therefore, 1998+10=2008

This game is not a prequel. That 10 years later line is so vague. It doesn't have to take place exactly 10 years after. All of the numbered games have been in chronological order. The president being dead would of been mentioned in RE5.

People can't be this ignorant.

If it's in 2008, it doesn't matter what month because RE5 is still in 2009.

It's a prequel, get over it. Just like RE3 being a some-what prequel to RE2.

Pretty sure it's after. It wouldn't make any sense to set it before RE5, given the scale of what is going on, Jill not being with Chris(both BSAA and Sheva was his first partner after Jill's death) and yeah, the President's death would have been mentioned. And Degeneration takes place a year before RE5 right? Don't see both of these happening in the same year.

RE5 is 10 years after RE2.

RE2:September 1998
RE5: March 2009

RE6:Could be anywhere from Sept 2008 to August 2009.
So we can't be sure if it's a prequel or not.

You're the ignorant one here, the President turns into a zombie in the trailer. There's no mention of this ever happening in RE5.
