The Prequel - Sequel Debate

This isn't exactly proof but this may be where the 2013 setting came in on some sites,

Raccoon Trials
The trial ended directly after Albert Wesker handed over the U.M.F.-013's data some time after the Caucasus outbreak of February 2003.

The only information we have so far is that the game is set 10 years after the incident not the trials.
The outbreak was in 1998 but we all know that Capcom was vague with RE5's dates as well and nothing this huge could've happened before 5 and not be mentioned at all during the whole game. Chris and others often refer to Raccoon City in 5 and it wouldn't make much sense if something worse actually happened.

Re 5 takes place in 2005 doesn't it?

RE5 takes place in 2009, not 2005.
