GAME are expected to finally receive PS5 stock in mid May – as the Suez Canal crisis means more PS5 consoles until ‘unlikely’ until the end of April.
A Twitter account that watches updates, @PS5StockAlertUK, said the likely restock is “officialising what we stated beforehand that the April restock dates were placeholders.
“This alone shows that we may not see any PS5s from any retailers during April at all.”
Last month the Ever Given cargo ship became stuck in the vital supply route, blocking hundreds of vessels – including, it appears, many that were carrying Playstation 5 consoles.
Although there have been sporadic resupplies since then, it was largely of consoles that were already in the country.
It means major UK retailers are now expected to experience a two week delay before getting new stock.
