It means, due to the rush of interest and sales of the RE series (after release of RE7), that their key limit was hit.

Steam does not have infinite keys available for a game, they get a pool of keys from the publisher. When this is exhausted, this is the error you will receive. It takes a couple of days usually when this happens, as they request a new batch of keys, and then the problem is resolved.

This is very common in older titles, where a new title is released and gathers interest to the old, and everyone rushes to buy a old title to catch-up on the series. Their key pool on hand doesnt have enough to distribute.

Just make some noise like you are, will be resolved shortly. Experienced this a few times already.
I have the game since the 23.10 2015 in my steam list and it cannot retrieve the keys that is actually. But why the key servers for the game Resident Evil 5 / Biohazard 5 not work, no idea it just wanted to just gamble and it just does not.

read up on a few forums saying the key could take a couple of days due to the lack of steam keys but I looked and saw that they have plenty so IDk if they are taking their time making everyone wait or just teasing us.

Same issue here. We'll just have to wait until the keys are refreshed. Bit disappointed, was looking to dive in and revisit this game. Looks like I'll just have to revisit RE4 first instead.

Guys I was thinking I don't know yet but since steams keycode generator thing is not working when you launch the game on steam cause it would say the key error which basically means that it downloaded the game but cannot generate the game key which is why the game does not launch because of the code but I was thinking what if I bought a code from g_2_a.com and activate it on steam would the game now work because g_2_A generates you the key to put into steam and activates the game. I'm going to try it today and see if that works instead of buying it from steam because steam is not generating the code even though you buy it

No it doesn't work as my friend tried that after getting a refund from steam (The version he brought were gold edition) though my G_2_A key (Not Gold edition) worked fine.
