In several past games and spinoff material the public pretty much already learned what happened to Racoon City and what Umbrella did if not in depth then at the very least know the basic gist of it. I really hope this isn't a retcon and that people still already know the basic stuff about the outbreak and he's just talking about letting them know the more case sensitive stuff.
Well, if you think about it, we're
still being told new info of what went down in Racoon City. I mean after 3
, everyone thought they knew everything there was to know about the Racoon City incident. Cue the Outbreak
games. After those two came and went, everyone went back to thinking what they thought before. Cue Operation: Racoon City
. Everytime we think we know everything, Capcom throws a fastball.
In universe, the public probably only knows the very basics of what went down. They probably have no idea about the events that transpired in the Arklay Mountains that set up the incident in Racoon City, and probably have no idea that Umbrella sent their own special forces in there to kill any survivors.
