Resident Evil 6 reportedly went on sale a month ahead of its official October 2nd release date at a retail store in Poland last week. However, Capcom has now confirmed that the copies were, in fact, stolen.
Someone is now trying to sell the game on eBay for a ludicrous amount of money.
In a statement issued to Eurogamer, Capcom clarified the incident, “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.”
Someone in possession of a copy is now trying to sell the game on eBay for a whopping €1196.71. The current bid is now €478.78.
