Call of Duty: Ghosts was dropped by UK retailer ShopTo recently, over a dispute surrounding shipping dates. The retailer has now decided to stock the shooter again, and has issued a statement online. Read it here.

If you missed the account of the initial row between ShopTo and Activision, go here.

The statement was posted here, and reads, “As you may recall, back in May 2013 we informed you that due to contractual issues and delivery policy agreement with Activision, ShopTo decided not to list Call of Duty: Ghosts for pre-order as we did not feel that we could maintain our high standards of release date delivery (99% delivery on release date).

We are now pleased to inform our customers that we have managed to come to an agreement with Activision which will allow us to once again make Call of Duty: Ghosts available for pre-order.

The new agreement will allow for us to have Royal Mail pick up customer orders on the Saturday prior to release. This will enable orders to enter the sorting system on Monday for delivery on Tuesday. This should help ensure that we meet our current high standards.

Please note that Royal Mail is currently scheduled to perform strike action in Monday, November 4. We are currently awaiting Activision’s decision on how delivery of the standard issue be resolved should the strike action take place. However, delivery of the Hardened edition will be dispatched via DPD.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts will hit PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on November 5. It’ll drop on PS4 and Xbox One at each console’s respective launch.
