Resident Evil 6 pre-orders off to promising start

Capcom’s Resident Evil 6 is currently experiencing the best start to pre-ordering that the franchise has ever seen.

The game, of course, isn’t out until November but that hasn’t stopped fans going crazy on the early orders, Capcom’s Christian Svensson told GameInformer (via).

“The pre-orders for Resident Evil 6 are off to a fantastic start. The best start a Resident Evil game has ever had,” he said.

No worries about launching in the busy holiday period, then? “We’re saying, ‘Get the hell out of the way.’ We’re a big game,” Svensson added. “We’re letting you know we’re coming.

“We’re giving people plenty of room to move around us.”

Other people could well include the next Call of Duty, which traditionally launches in November every year.
