Thankfully, we have a definitive date lined up for this first Originals pack. 2K Games has revealed that the date, which should show up as part of this message, is October 28. The whole message should read: “Your code becomes active on 10/28/2019 at 16:00 UTC. Hope to see you back here!”

That’s a bit frustrating as it’s still five days away. Even so, this isn’t a massive bug after all and your content will be with you shortly without you having to fix it yourself.
