Persona 5 Royal released early amid COVID-19 scare

The pandemic of coronavirus has ravaged the world. Several countries have locked up to monitor the situation in its entirety. During the meantime, several big releases of the game were delayed by shutdowns.

Some stores have taken different measures to ensure players can get the game. Instead of the coronavirus outbreak, EB Games launched Persona 5 Royal in Australia. A user of Reddit discovered that before the release date, he could receive a copy of the game. Previously, two games, Death Stranding and Animal Crossing had been published two days ago.

Games like Sims 4 had been reduced by 75% following the outbreak, with many different initiatives being published within the esports industry.
