Update: Capcom set the following statement to Game Informer:

"While we have not confirmed the final number of cutscenes in the game, the BBFC length also includes death scenes for the six characters in the game, and is not an accurate representation of the actual cinematic cut-scene total, which will be less."


The sixth major entry in Capcom's Resident Evil franchise features over four hours of cutscenes, according to a new listing by the British Board of Film Classification.

The rating lists the total runtime of cutscenes at 255 minutes. For comparison, Resident Evil 5 had 65 minutes of cutscenes while Resident Evil 4 had 127 minutes.
