Mastertronic has promised to provide more stock for Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga after the first batch sold out.
The launch allocation for Focus Home Interactive's Xbox 360 RPG had run out ahead of its release last Friday.
But the game's distributor has assured retailers that there will be sufficient supply to meet demand.
Our experience with the original Divinity II meant that we were expecting good things for the launch of this expanded edition, but the demand has really taken us by surprise,” said Mastertronic's group sales director James Cato.
We've had to pull out all the stops to get more stock and to make sure that we can continue to fulfil orders in time.
A lot of hard work from a lot of people means that we are still going to hit our release dates and there will be minimum disruption to orders already placed.
Such high levels of interest point to Divinity II being one of the strongest RPG titles on the market this Christmas.”
