Capcom has confirmed that copies of Resident Evil 6, sold in Poland nearly a month ahead of the game's launch, were stolen. Speaking to Eurogamer, a company representative explained that it is presently looking into the matter, which involved only small number of units.
"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 the site. "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."
Reports of Resident Evil 6 being sold in Polish shops surfaced late last week. It is not clear how many units of the game are in the wild. One user took to eBay to unload the game, with a reported starting bid of about $600. That listing is no longer available.
