Two Worlds II now Amazon exclusive, gets pushed back a week

Wednesday, 23rd February 2011 09:49 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Eurogamer‘s reporting that TopWare will now release Two Worlds II as an Amazon.co.uk exclusive in the UK.

The news means that all SKUs of the game, which has again been delayed to next Friday, March 5 from this Friday, will only be sold through the online retailer.

“TopWare Interactive is releasing the widely popular and highly anticipated Two Worlds II exclusively on Amazon in the UK on Tuesday, 1st of March, 2011,” TopWare told the site.

“Eager to get our game out to the RPG hungry masses, TopWare has decided to forego a retail release, and launch Two Worlds II solely on Amazon.com.”

If you pre-ordered elsewhere, you’re out of luck.

“If you had pre-ordered this award winning title elsewhere, they will not have stock as Amazon will be fulfilling all of the United Kingdom. Amazon will have all versions in stock, including the esteemed Royal Edition.”

Today’s news follows concerns overnight of a release of the RPG in the UK and Australia.

    I don’t understand it. They allegedly tried to influence reviews in order to boost sales, yet they’re not even capable of selling the game properly.

    Also, while all this is going on, they find time to announce another installment of the series for 2012. Bit of a kick in the teeth, no?

    I’m so glad I bought the game from a non-UK source when it first came out on the continent, otherwise I don’t think I would’ve bothered with all these delays.

    @7 not alot of people know the game exists to be fair and the fact they are limiting themselves to that one way of selling the game means it will flop

    It’s pretty obvious they’re not doing this because they just feel like screwing with people. After the mess with Southpeak, they don’t have a publisher for the UK and this is the best they could do. Can they be blamed for being incompetent? Maybe, though we don’t know the full story. But the anger directed towards them is almost certainly quite misplaced.
