Several copies of Resident Evil 6 appeared in a Polish retailer for sale late last week and were quickly snapped up weeks ahead of the game’s official launch, however Capcom has now confirmed that these copies were stolen.

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

It’s unclear exactly how many copies were stolen, however one of them is already up for sale on Ebay for a ridiculous amount of money.
