Is the Resident Evil 3 Remake India release date delayed?
Capcom has stated that gamers who have pre-ordered Resident Evil 3 Remake should check with their local retailer. Several sources in the supply chain speaking to The Mako Reactor have confirmed that local authorities have shut down warehouses holding goods deemed as non-essential such as video games and consoles.
This should come as no surprise given that entire country is in India lockdown, to the point where even if copies of Resident Evil 3 Remake have made it into local ports officially, it may not be cleared by customs in time for the release. That said, expect a call from your game store soon enough. We’ve reached out to E-xpress Interactive, Capcom’s distributor in India and we’ll update this story if we hear from it.
