Coronavirus (COVID-19) has already caused game delays such as The Last of Us Part 2 and it’s possible more will follow, but GameStop is still accepting pre-orders on upcoming titles. The retailer has now announced new procedures it has in place for customers picking up their games.
For areas where GameStop stores are still open, you can pick up your pre-ordered games on launch day using the Delivery@Door service, which has an employee meet you at the door and hand you your game. The only options for paying off these orders are chipped credit cards and GameStop gift cards.
At closed GameStop stores, you’ll have the option to get the game shipped, and GameStop is sending out emails with instructions. If you only put a small deposit on the game, you will have the option to get a virtual gift card with that same amount so you can order the game online.
