New Resident Evil Trademark Points to Spinoff Game

A trademark has been filed by Resident Evil developer Capcom for Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps in Europe and Japan.

The first trademark, simply titled “Umbrella Corps,” was made with the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) by a representative named Javier Ungria  López with an address in Spain. In addition to English being listed as the “filing language,” Spanish is listed as the “second language.” The filing date was July 7, 2015.

Adding to the legitimacy of Umbrella Corps being the name of new Resident Evil product, Dual Shockers spotted a trademark made by Capcom with the Japanese Patent and Trademark Office for “Biohazard Umbrella Corps.” Biohazard is used in place of Resident Evil in Japan. The Japanese trademark has been made in Romaji and Hiragana spellings.

Capcom has not made any official announcement regarding a game or other product named Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps. The only title to use “Umbrella” in the title was 2007’s Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for the Nintendo Wii. It was later ported to the PlayStation 3.

The most recent Resident Evil game to be released was Resident Evil: Revelations 2, which was released episodically in four installments on a weekly basis. As for upcoming releases, Capcom plans to release Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster in early 2016.
