The remake of the classic PlayStation Resident Evil 3 will be released on April 3rd. The pre-order is now available online and fans of the saga no longer need to wait long. However, anyone who wants a physical copy of the game is unlucky, confirms Capcom on Twitter.

Due to the negative impact of COVID-19 on most technology industries (games, mobile phones and computers), Capcom warns that physical copies of Resident Evil 3 will experience some delays. However, digital copies will have no availability problem, obviously.

Several factories have closed or slowed production around the world due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus. In addition, the main distribution warehouses are focusing on delivering only products considered essential goods such as groceries and medicines.

Amazon had already announced weeks ago that it would focus only on delivering essential products to its consumers. Thus, games and other expendable technologies will have long delays in their deliveries.

However, Capcom points out that most delays will be located in warehouses in Europe. This way, consumers in Japan and the United States may not have so many problems obtaining physical copies.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake suffered the same fate

A few days ago Square Enix that the availability of physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake will also be limited. It is an inevitable situation where the people most affected will be those who have already pre-sold the physical game or collector’s editions.
