Upcoming PC title Two Worlds II was supposed to launch in the UK tomorrow. That launch has been pushed back to the end of February, however, after the freighter carrying all the games had a little trouble.
"We just received the container from China with the Collector's Edition and other components and they are wrecked," a representative of the game's publisher TopWare told game site Eurogamer.
"Several components were just a total wreck and unacceptable for us to give out to our fans. We are printing some of these in Europe now and the boxes are being air freighted from China."
"I cannot believe this but it is really happening!"
Since the boxes were not made of glass, we can only guess that either the ship survived the perfect storm or somebody forgot to line the crates with old newspaper!
Two Worlds II, originally planned for a February 4 release, will now be out February 25. Unless a truck explodes or the printing place is overrun with locusts.
