Capcom is thankful despite their broken street date of their latest Devil May Cry HD Collection after receiving a report that a few gamers have purchased a copy of the title before its launch date.
A week after the report have been disseminated, Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer, Senior Vice President and at the same time a video game developer of Capcom, gave his response on the situation by telling the crowd that they already have removed the street date restriction for the selling of the series Devil May Cry HD Collection. His statements stand in as a confirmation that all stores could sell the compilation without the need to ask permission from them. He also said that though what happened is quite inauspicious, they are still overwhelmed and happy with the fact that Devil May Cry HD Collection has a lot of supporters, proven by the incident that have had just happened, which is for them, a positive response from the people.
Official Statement of Christian Svensson: All stores in North America. We’ve unfortunately had some pretty obvious street date breaks (not isolated, larger scale) that necessitated letting it loose a little earlier than planned. It’s up to store by store/chain by chain whether or not they’re going to sell “early” at this point though, but there will be no backlash from us on it.
I’m happy to see the responses from those who have it are quite positive though. The team worked very hard on it.
