Capcom: Early Resident Evil 6 sales were stolen

Small number limited to German PS3 version, says Capcom.

Last week, Resident Evil 6 sales a month before release date were reported in Poland. According to Capcom, this is due to a small number of stolen copies.

“Capcom is currently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2 release date,” Capcom told Eurogamer in a statement.

“At this time, all we can add is that it would appear this unfortunate incident is limited to a small quantity of stolen copies of the German USK PlayStation 3 version of the game.”

Resident Evil 6 will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, officially, on October 2 worldwide.
