Good news for the Modern Warfare 2 fans in the United Kingdom. Those who ordered the game from The Hut and, by proxy, LoveFilm have been getting an early delivery on their doorsteps lately, but not by design.
“We are dedicated to getting products to customers on release. We use Royal Mail as our preferred courier and were advised to dispatch on Thursday for delivery on Tuesday due to the impending strike action. This was called off on Thursday evening and we have contacted Royal Mail to hold the product until Tuesday,” said The Hut when talking with GamesIndustry.biz.
That being said, High Street retailers have been found out to be selling copies early from within their retail stores. While the game is not set to be sold until next week, which HMV, GAME, and Gamestation say they will adhere to, it does not seem too hard to get your hands on an early copy if you really want.
