Posted on December 5, 2011, CJ Miozzi Your WalMart TOR Preoder May Have Been Canceled
Before WalMart could officially respond, Bioware’s Senior Online Community Manager Stephen Reid tried to assuage concerns:
We will investigate this issue ASAP, although we may not have further details to share before Monday. I obviously cannot speak on behalf of any retailer, however I would like to let people know who have pre-ordered and redeemed their preorder code, that their Early Game Access is still secured. You may apply any Game Code from any edition of The Old Republic to your account.
A WalMart representative later stated that, for most people who preordered, this is a false alarm. There was no overselling, but a small number of preorders may not be honored because of users ordering at the same time when the stocks of the Collector’s Edition had nearly run out. Anyone who preordered should check their account on the 6th, once the kinks have been worked out of the system.
