Zombie shooter World War Z is so popular physical copies are in short supply

Zombie shooter World War Z is so popular physical copies are in short supply

In an age of 4K streaming, Spotify playlists and Amazon Prime next day delivery, it’s not too often you hear about people not being able to access something – let alone physical copies of a video game. That’s exactly what’s happened to the console version of World War Z, however, a new first-person shooter developed by Saber Interactive that pits players against hordes of zombies.

The lack of physical World War Z copies was first noticed by PlayStation-focussed site Push Square, which highlighted how both GAME and Amazon UK aren’t able to guarantee players disc editions of World War Z within the immediate future. Of course, this doesn’t mean digital copies are in short supply – anyone can currently play World War Z via digital download where it retails for £34.99. If you’re someone who prefers buying games physically, though, who knows when World War Z will be available.

When you consider that World War Z stormed its way to the top of the physical game sales chart during its week of release - selling over a million copies across all platforms - the picture becomes slightly clearer as to why physical discs are in short supply. The hunger for zombies in video games is clearly undergoing a bit of a resurgence, with Saber Interactive’s game being the exemplar. This, along with Days Gone recently being revealed as being the UK’s best-selling physical game in 2019 so far, seemingly confirms this.

Have you picked up Days Gone or World War Z yet? Let us know how you get on with the latter.
