Unlike the Detective Pikachu graphic novel, Capcom released a statement on Thursday that will likely disappoint fans. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Capcom announced that the physical distribution of the upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake could be delayed in certain European markets.

Distribution Delays

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the world, distribution channels are struggling to keep up with demand. Capcom is not immune to these challenges and released a humbling statement on Thursday:

As we all know, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is having a widespread impact as respective governments in Europe have instituted various restrictions to prevent any additional spread.

Although the global release date for Resident Evil 3 remains April 3, 2020, some European markets may experience delayed deliveries or availability of physical goods, including disc copies of games.

While the United Kingdom, Germany, and Italy are among the most impacted by the pandemic, they are also most likely to experience delays in physical distribution. As a result, fans of the Resident Evil series could experience delays with next week’s RE3 Remake. For that reason, we strongly recommend fans consider purchasing digital copies on PC, PS4 and XBOX.
