OMFG WE GOT PWNEDDD
Resident Evil 6 Teaser Confirmed as Fake
Cleverly-edited teaser making the rounds.
September 16, 2011
Late last night, a fake teaser trailer for Resident Evil 6 began making the rounds. The teaser, which appears to be shot from the audience of Capcom's TGS theater, fooled several sites, including (very briefly) IGN.
Two and a half years have passed since the release of Resident Evil 5, and excitement for the sequel has reached a fever pitch, lending to the credibility of the supposed announcement.
The teaser, shown above, features a black screen along with the text "The world has seen all kinds of horror. Bio-organic weapons have taken over. And one place has the key to stop it all." The numbers 48.415802,-89.2673 also appear, pointing to the latitude and longitude of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
Sources at Capcom have confirmed the trailer to be fake, but no additional comments have been offered at this time.
