OK so now we all know we won't get it on time, fair enough.

However my question to TRION is what is going to be put in place for UE customers who won't be able to play for 10 Days?

You don't really want to dump on the user base giving you the biggest pile of cash surely?

Wait they're delaying the UE? They're going to lose some money for that I wounder how many of the UE Pre-orders will just pre-order the standard instead? Atleast 5 i would say..



Lol 5 was just a random number xD

OK so now we all know we won't get it on time, fair enough.We do? I believe one user in the UK posted that one retailer is delaying shipment.

I don't believe I've heard that this will affect all users in the UK, much less the rest of the world. Do you have any official source?

I would but no point spending 35 on a regular edition that is rendered useless once the code is used.

think I saw something like this once before. The company had a grace period put in place so they could DL the game and play without having a paid account. Once the game shipped all they had to do was put in thier CD key on the account they made and it was a real account. Being that this is Xbox though i dont even know if thats possible or if Trion would even bother.

Feel bad for you guys its killing me just waiting till the 2nd

Couldn't 100% confirm but issue lies with NAMCO BANDI not shipping to suppliers.

Suggests that it's only the xbox UE that's delayed for Amazon UK.

Here in the US, Gamestop still lists all platforms' UE as coming out on 2 April.

This delay is ONLY THE UK Amazon site, regarding ONLY the XBOX version. This is a copy/paste of a post of mine from a different thread.

I just called my buddy, that happens to be a Gamestop Manager. He says the Ultimate Edtiion of Defiance for ALL systems is still listed in the system as releasing April 2nd, and he is expecting delivery of this within a few days, as usual before a game comes out the following week. Not sure if this is due to there being a "Gamestop Exclusive Edtion" of the Ultimate version of the game or not.

US VERSIONS ARE NOT DELAYED, ONLY The Amazon UK XBOX VERSION!!
