Trailer reveals new Resident Evil 6 date

Resident Evil 6's release has been brought forward by more than a month, and the game will now launch on October 2.

The change in date was revealed in the below trailer, first shown at Capcom's Captivate press event in Rome last week. The news was under embargo until 4pm today but was revealed early, apparently on Sony's official YouTube channel.

Resident Evil 6 was announced in January, and was to be released on November 20. It is Capcom's biggest project to date, with 600 staff around the world involved in development.
