Yesterday brought us the troubling (yet not unexpected) news that the continually-delayed RPG Two Worlds II might not release in the UK. Thankfully it seems that Amazon.co.uk have stepped into the breach, but will provide the only way of getting your hands on it.
High street retailer GAME was slated to be the only British retailer that would supply Two Worlds II thanks to an exclusive agreement with Topware, but unspecified shipping problems (and possibly some bad vibes surrounding Topware's ongoing scandal over PR manipulation) meant that they've completely pulled out. This left the future of a UK release in serious doubt and disarray, but Amazon.co.uk have confirmed that they'll be exclusively stocking the RPG as of March 1st.
Eager to get our game out to the RPG hungry masses, TopWare has decided to forego a retail release, and launch Two Worlds II solely on Amazon.com.
If you had pre-ordered this award winning title elsewhere, they will not have stock as Amazon will be fulfilling all of the United Kingdom. Amazon will have all versions in stock, including the esteemed Royal Edition. - Topware rep to VG247
There'll also be a seven day delay... but considering that several months have passed since the projected release date, I'm sure that you're willing to wait another week.
Got a preorder with anyone but Amazon? I'd go ahead and cancel it if I were you.
