Retailer GAME has released a statement confirming rumours that it will not be stocking Mass Effect 3 next week.
It has not, however, addressed the belief that a complete stop has been put on the stocking of all future EA games beyond this Friday’s Mass Effect 3.
“We currently have a supply issue with regards to Mass Effect 3, which means that GAME and Gamestation will not be able to fulfill orders for Mass Effect 3 at this time,” a spokesperson told MCV.
“We want to give customers as much notice about this as possible and provide them with a range of options ahead of launch. We appreciate that this is disappointing for our customers, and we apologise sincerely for the inconvenience that this will cause. We value the loyalty of our customers very highly and as a gesture of goodwill we are providing the following:
“Customers who have pre-ordered in store will have the opportunity to add £5 worth of Reward points to their card if they visit us from today through to 16 March 2012. Customers who have placed a deposit for the title* will receive refund as well as the £5 worth of Reward points between 1 and 16 March 2012.
“Customers who have pre-ordered online, will be provided with an online voucher to the value of £5 to be spent on any purchase on our sites.”
