The rumored delay of FFVII Remake physical copies is caused by COVID-19 outbreak, forced Amazon to introduce new shipment policies. Fans who have pre-ordered the highly-anticipated remake through Amazon have received e-mails that the title has been delayed and no date has been provided by Amazon for delivery.
Yesterday, Amazon announced that it would be suspending shipments of all nonessential products to its warehouses to deal with the increased workloads following the coronavirus outbreak. “We are seeing increased online shopping, and as a result some products such as household staples and medical supplies are out of stock,” the email obtained by Business Insider said.
“With this in mind, we are temporarily prioritizing household staples, medical supplies, and other high-demand products coming into our fulfillment centers so that we can more quickly receive, restock, and deliver these products to customers.”
“For products other than these, we have temporarily disabled shipment creation. We are taking a similar approach with retail vendors.”
According to Amazon, it will be prioritizing medical supplies, household staples, and other high-demand products to its warehouses until April 5. So unfortunately Amazon won’t be shipping physical copies of Final Fantasy VII Remake until the 5th of April. With Square Enix’s remake launching globally on April 10.
