Hype leading up to the likely announcement of Resident Evil 6 has reached a fever pitch in the last couple of days as a mysterious video and a viral website have teased that some sort of announcement would be coming at 2pm Pacific time today, about one hour from now as I'm writing this post.

Well it looks like somebody let the cat out of the bag a little early. IGN is showing photos of promotional posters for the game outing the game's release date:

Resident Evil 6 will (maybe) be in stores on November 20th, 2012.

Speculating on whether these posters are real or not doesn't really seem worth it, given that we'll most likely be getting the official statement from Capcom at 2pm PST.
