Is the Wolfenstein game released in 2009 a sequel to the 2004 Return to Castle Wolfenstein, or a reboot?

I cannot recall any references to the previous game in the 2009 game, although it does seem to be an entirely different adventure story-wise.

It's a sequel.

That review calls it a sequel, but is there any word from the developers on what they meant it to be? – What's up Doc Mar 5 '12 at 11:09
No idea.. I've never played the game. Although, reviewers usually state whether a new game in a franchise is a reboot or a sequel. – Vinay S Shenoy Mar 5 '12 at 11:15
Wikipedia also says it's a sequel: – Ric Mar 5 '12 at 12:24
Is the 2004 RoCW a sequel or a reboot to the original 1992 Wolfenstein 3D? ;) – acalypso Mar 5 '12 at 13:14
I'd say the RoCW is more a reboot. – Alan B Mar 5 '12 at 13:34
