Restrictions in European countries on travel and the shipment of goods are in place to stop the spread of the virus, and could potentially affect the game's release in Europe. Whilst reaffirming the global release date of April 3, 2020, Capcom noted that European markets "may experience delayed deliveries or availability of physical goods, including disc copies of games." This means that some stores, and thus customers, may not receive Resident Evil 3 until an undetermined point after launch due to potential supply chain problems caused by the pandemic. The digital release of the game will naturally go on unaffected.

The company is in communication with its distribution partners to ensure the game's availability in accordance with current importing guidelines, and we'll be sure to let you know if Capcom issues any more updates.
