Sony has launched a new viral website for the Umbrella Corporation, along with the announcement of a 2012 Umbrella Corporation Recruiting Tour. Included on their list of stops is San Diego, which means that Resident Evil should have a big presence at this year's San Diego Comic-Con in July.

We've included the news release below, and you can visit the official website for videos, downloads, and a message from Alice:


Umbrella Corporation, one of the world's leading biotechnology conglomerates, has unleashed a globe-spanning recruiting tour to find the world's greatest minds to make advancements for the betterment of all mankind in the fields of biotechnology and genetic research. The tour kicks off in Cancun, Mexico in April 2012 and ends in Tokyo, Japan in September.

Founded by Ozwell E. Spencer and Edward Ashford, Umbrella Corporation is best known for creating Aqua Cure®, an ointment that rapidly heals open wounds. Utilizing products that are home grown in Raccoon City, Umbrella Corporation has since opened operations around the world and created many life-altering pharmaceutical products including Adravil®, Regenerate® and Return®.

"At Umbrella Corporation, we believe that nothing is impossible", said Christopher Chung, President of world-wide recruiting at Umbrella Corporation. "While we employ some of the world's best scientific minds, we are excited to hit the road and find talent that can help us shape the future of humanity."

To accomplish this unprecedented recruiting tour, a state-of-the-art vehicle has been created that will makes its way from location to location by land and sea. The vehicle is equipped with a fully functional research laboratory that will be manned by famous Umbrella Corporation scientists Dr. Henrik Markarian, Dr. James Safechuck, and Dr. Joshua Golsen.

"What will the world be like tomorrow?" Umbrella Corporation's Chief Operations Officer, Michelleanne Grepo, asks. "Thanks to Umbrella Corporation, 'tomorrow' is no longer a dream, but a reality today."
