Umbrella Corps is set after Resident Evil 6; Capcom looks set to revive the evil corporation


Speaking with Gamespot, Capcom’s Masachika Kawata revealed quite a bit about the upcoming Resident Evil shooter, Umbrella Corps.

“The game is not a hypothetical, ‘what-if’ side scenario. Umbrella Corps is set in the present day of Resident Evil, which means it’s after the events of Resident Evil 6,” Kawata began.

“It’s almost in an ironic way that we’re using the title Umbrella Corps. If you know your Resident Evil lore, Umbrella no longer exists at this time in the universe; it’s been destroyed. There’s definitely a kind of a background of the Resident Evil universe that forms the basis of the game’s premise.”

Looks like Umbrella’s coming back. Do you think this is a set up for Resident Evil 7 proper?

Umbrella Corps will be available in 2016 on both Windows PC and PS4.
