Capcom’s upcoming release Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will not be sold at GAME or Gamestation, MCV can confirm.
The game is due for release in the UK on March 23rd.
It follows in the footsteps of fellow Capcom releases Street Fighter X Tekken and Asura’s Wrath, which were also not stocked by the retailer.
“Capcom must confirm that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City scheduled for release on Friday March 23rd, will not be stocked by GAME or Gamestation either in their retail outlets or on their online stores operating in the UK and Ireland,” a Capcom statement issued to MCV reads.
“Capcom wants to reassure its consumers that this title will be available at a wide variety of retailers across the UK and Ireland. For those consumers who have already placed a deposit to pre-order of Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City then a full refund will be available – please contact your local GAME or Gamestation shop or visit the online stores.
“Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is available for pre-order or to purchase on day of release from the following outlets: Blockbusters, HMV, Play.com, Amazon.co.uk, Shopto.net, The Hut and leading independent stockists as well as supermarket chains.”
In better news, Sony has confirmed that PS3 release Twisted Metal will be in stores this Friday.
