Capcom warns of Resident Evil 3 remake delays due to pandemic

CAPCOM is cautioning customers that there may be a Resident Evil 3 remake release date delay in Europe. If you’re hoping to get your hands on a copy of the Resident Evil 3 remake, you may be waiting longer than you expect.

A tweet from CAPCOM noted that while the official release date currently remains unchanged, “some European markets” could potentially face delayed deliveries of non-essential goods. Naturally, this includes video games, and the next Resident Evil remake game may well be affected, whether you’re getting a regular boxed copy or one of the awesome collector’s editions.

Resident Evil’s Community Manager notes that any such delays only applies to physical products. If you’ve pre-ordered the digital version of the game (either through a physical retailer or an online store), you should still be getting the game at the appropriate time.

It’s unclear if this potential Resident Evil 3 remake release date delay will also include North America. While CAPCOM’s message focuses on Europe, other games potentially face problems with physical copies arriving on your doorstep in a timely manner and recent Animal Crossing: New Horizonspushed back past the release date shipments were in some North American markets.
