Capcom investigating theft of Resident Evil 6 copies

PS3 version being sold on eBay a month ahead of release

Capcom has confirmed reports that retail copies of the PS3 version of Resident Evil 6 are in the wild well ahead of schedule.


A Polish retailer seemingly broke the street date for the game last week ahead of its planned release next month, and copies of the game are now up for sale on eBay.

Capcom told CVG in a statement today: "Capcom is currently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2 release date.

"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."
