Capcom Confirms Resident Evil 6 Leaked Copies Were Stolen

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.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
