Red Dead Redemption stock may be running low in the UK, but Rockstar has told MCV that the situation should be resolved within days.
The current UK No.1 has arrived amidst strong reviews – and huge interest from consumers.
Some retailers in fact say they won’t have stock until next week, however Rockstar reckons supplies will be topped up by the weekend. Even crazier stories last week suggested an entire cargo boat of games had gone missing.
But it seems good old demand is the reason for the shortage. And it’s a temporary shortage, at worst.
We have seen very strong demand for Red Dead Redemption at launch which did impact on availability for gamers in some locations unfortunately and we’re sorry if that has been the case," Neil Stephen, Rockstar Games’ UK GM told MCV today.
"We have been working hard with all our partners to get more stock into stores to meet the ongoing demand as quickly as possible and we believe the situation should be resolved by this weekend, so we’d like to thank everyone involved for their part in this.”
