Ahead of its release on 3rd April, Capcom has warned Resident Evil 3 physical copies may be delayed in Europe due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement released on Twitter, Capcom explained while they’re sticking with the 3rd April release date for Resident Evil 3 remake, there may be some delays in Europe for physical editions.
“As we all know, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is having a widespread impact as respective governments in Europe have instituted various restrictions to prevent any additional spread,” the statement reads.

“Although the global release date for Resident Evil 3 remains April 3, 2020, some European markets may experience delayed deliveries or availability of physical goods, including disc copies of goods.”
It’s a similar warning Square Enix issued regarding orders for Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is set to be released on 10th April.
It likely won’t be the last game affected by the pandemic either, so if you’re particularly keen to play Resident Evil 3 on release day, it might be safer to purchase the digital version.
Resident Evil 3 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 3rd April.
