I find Lucas Baker more interesting than Albert Wesker, but this does not mean that Baker will be more important than Al.I know ı said this elsewhere before but ı personally dont find umbrella that interesting.
The Umbrella storyline, which was at the foundation of the series, never got its climax, so it deserves it. And its significance cannot be overstated when even Simmons is clearly inspired by Spencer, and Carla's organization used Umbrella's name and logo.
Mikami-san personally said that Umbrella was important to him, and also that this decision was made intentionally in order to be able to resurrect the organization later. It was obvious to everyone that after Raccoon City, the future of the company in the form in which it existed was impossible. Or very doubtful, at least. And even Wesker himself acknowledged this at the time of the Zero events. So it is not surprising that the developers have changed the status quo of Umbrella to justify the existence of the organization.I wouldnt say that. I feel like they ignored it on purpose mainly cause they wanted to put an end to wesker 1st followed by expanding the government corruption while letting umbrella grow on background.
So far, I'm pretty sure that's the case. The more I thought about it, the less sense I found in the idea of an impostor. And this is actually a good opportunity to bring Jake back into the narrative.Though it wouldnt surprise me if they revived him too.
While some see this story as a story about Wesker's death, for me it's a story about how he took Spencer's place. And intentionally or not, it ends up repeating an early idea with Tony, who was supposed to kill his father and become the leader of his company.It seems that with re5, they werent even sure whether they wanted to kill him or not.
