SouthPeak reports US retail stock in Two Worlds II running low

SouthPeak has said over Twitter that it’s having issues meeting US retail demand for Two Worlds II.

According to various tweets from SouthPeak PR representative Aubrey Norris, “Two Worlds II is literally flying off the shelves at several large retailers,”.

“We can’t restock them fast enough,” she tweeted. “I’m getting the rundown of all the retailers that sold out of their initial orders. We’re printing more copies asap… wish retail would have ordered more to begin with so we wouldn’t be out of stock, but [it’s] not a bad problem to have.”

SouthPeak’s initial reports find the platform selling through the most copies is the Xbox 360 version.

RipTen, which noticed the tweets, called around to local game retailers in its area and found several Best Buy and GameStop locations were indeed completely out of Two Worlds II.

We called our local Best Buy, which confirmed it was running low on stock of the RPG, and yesterday upon a visit to GameStop we were unable to find a copy for PS3 or Xbox 360. We were told to check back later in the week for more stock.

After various delays, Two Worlds II was released last month in North America on PS3 and Xbox 360. It is out on PC and Mac February 28.

The game launched in mainland Europe back in November on PC, and sold 1 million units. It’s slated for a UK release on February 4.
