Cherdenko's chrono-erasure of Professor Albert Einstein erased the Allied technological advantages over the USSR as well as the whole world of Nuclear Technology, depriving the Soviets of their Nuclear arsenal. With Nuclear weapons gone and after Great World War II, the Empire of the Rising Sun rises to superpower status and secretly builds their army.
World War III ends with an Allied victory. The Empire of the Rising Sun is now led by a puppet government, led by Crown Prince Tatsu, to which the remaining Shogunates rebel, sparking the Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising.
The once mighty USSR is divided into 15 republics. The Soviet Underground movement began to fight FutureTech Corporation with success to expel the Allied occuaption forces from the USSR, giving them the means to rebuild their Soviet empire. They destroy the Sigma Harmonizer to rescue themselves and, indirectly, the Allies, from being chrono-erased by Rupert Thornley's madman plans of ridding the world of communism at the roots.
The Empire of the Rising Sun saw a shogunate uprising and, with Allied help, Emperor Tatsu almost restored full power to the now-defeated Empire. The Shoguns and Tatsu himself are now under Allied arrest - alternatively, the forward-thinking once-Crown Prince made his show of independence.
Yuriko "Omega" Matsui, through 3 phases of trials and tribulations, is now free, after she killed Izumi, her "sister", and Dr. Shinji Shimada, the man responsible for the "Omega Project".
