Capcom Europe has warned fans that the physical copies of Resident Evil 3 may be delayed in the region due to restrictions related to the pandemic COVID-19.

While the launch date of Resident Evil 3, however, remains the April 3, 2020, Capcom has stated that those who have ordered a physical copy or the collector’s edition will have to verify availability with your dealer.

“As we all know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a strong impact, and governments in Europe have instituted various restrictions to prevent any further spread”.

“Although the date of the global launch for Resident Evil 3 stays on the 3rd April 2020, some european markets could suffer delays in delivery or availability of physical assets, including the disc copies of the games”.

“We are closely following the official regulations to make sure we give priority to the safety of our fans, employees and partners. Therefore, we are often in communication with our partners in distribution and retail in each market to make available copies once the conditions of local or import permit”.

“Check with your local retailer for more updates related to the individual orders and the availability of physical copies of Resident Evil 3 and of the collector’s editions”.

“We will do our best to keep you updated on the major changes and thank you for your patience. In the meantime, we hope that you and your loved ones be safe.”


The pandemic of Coronavirus in the course has affected many retail chains, stores-Amazon, for example, have stopped to make deliveries of non-essential items.

Square Enix, in a very similar way to Capcom, has warned that there might be problems with the distribution of physical copies of FFVII Remake.
