Yesterday the UK’s biggest brick-and-mortar movie and video game rental store, BlockBuster, went into administration for the second time this year. We reported that the company won’t be honouring Xbox One and PlayStation 4 pre-orders and now according to our source familiar with the company, Blockbuster may not be getting stock for this years most anticipated titles and will offer in-store credit to customers who have pre-ordered.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4 are a few of the titles our source said that BlockBuster may no longer be stocking over the next few months. We’re being told that those who have pre-ordered the titles mentioned will be given the equivalent amount returned as in-store credit. This information is subject to change, but it’s looking very likely that this is an accurate report.
We’ll keep you posted on any developments.
