Amazon was roped in as the exclusive partner for sale of EA’s FIFA 16 in India. However, some recent developments have disappointed gamers. To start with, people who had pre-ordered this game received an email on Tuesday stating that the game will only come on or after September 30.
The delay is not the only problem here. Rumor also has it that the game would be available to offline retailers in the gray markets in cities like Chennai, Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi.
A source close to Amazon told NDTV that the orders were placed only five days back. The source also said that the company probably wanted to see how many pre-orders they get because they confirm to EA.
With everything taken into account, it is quite upsetting to see how the e-commerce giant is handling the release of one of the most anticipated games of 2015.
FIFA 16 would be available on Amazon India at a price of Rs. 3,999. However, it would be available everywhere else at a cheaper price. While this is good news for many gamers, this has irked all those fans who pre-ordered the game.
There is no news from Amazon yet on their plans for launch of the game in India.
