Video: Resident Evil 6 release date moved forward

October 2 is the new date, confirms leaked trailer

Resident Evil 6's release date has been moved forward by over a month, it's been confirmed.


In a second leak from Capcom's Captivate event - the first of which confirmed Lost Planet 3 - a new Resi 6 trailer puts the sequel down for an October 2 release, after the game was previously dated for November 20.

At the time of publication the trailer's still viewable on YouTube.

The trailer provides some new details on the Javo, the main enemies in Resident Evil 6, which are apparently created using the C Virus. From the looks of it Ada Wong seems to be getting up to no good again, although the female antagonist might be an entirely new character, we're not totally sure yet.

Sherry Birkin will also make her return in Resident Evil 6, and is joined by Albert Weskers son. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

We went through the last Resident Evil 6 trailer with a fine-toothed comb and picked out the details you might not have spotted. Take a look.
