Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps trademarked

We might be seeing a new Resident Evil game on the horizon if two trademarks, one from Europe and one from Japan, are any indication.

Capcom has filed for the name Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps with the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM), suggesting a possible spin-off title for the series. Another trademark was spotted by DualShockers on the Japanese Patent and Trademark Office listing for Biohazzard: Umbrella Corps.

So if Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps is Capcom’s next title in the series, when or what could we expect from the series?

With Gamescom just little more than a week away, it may be possible that we might see an announcement, but it seems too quick, I’d put my money on seeing something in September during the Tokyo Game Show. As of what the game could focus on, the title hints at Umbrella playing a major role, with players possibly taking over as a member of Umbrella’s military crew.

Of course this is speculation at the moment, but we’d love to hear your thoughts! What do you think this new Umbrella Corps game could be?
