Update: Bandai Namco has confirmed that this delay to May 2 only affects physical boxed copies of Dark Souls II in the U.K. “This is only affecting the U.K. on the boxed release of the game,” a rep told MCV. “It will be delayed unfortunately and we apologise to U.K. customers. This is due to a manufacturing issue with packaging. To confirm this will only affect the U.K. boxed launch.”

This means that the physical copy of the game will not be available until May 2, but the digital version retains its April 25 release date.

Original Story: The PC release of Dark Souls II has suffered a one-week delay, according to a number of reports.

GameKeysNow.com reports that it has been informed by “official U.K. distribution that Dark Souls 2 has been delayed by a week until May 2nd 2014.” According to the site, it is a “worldwide delay affecting physical and digital copies.” However, so far most reports are pointing to a U.K. only delay for physical copies.

As well as this, customers who have pre-ordered the game from Amazon U.K. have received an email (via NeoGAF) informing them of the delay from April 25 to May 2. U.K. retailer ShopTo has also changed its listing for the game to a May 2 release date.

Bandai Namco U.K. appears to be unaware of the delay however. “Currently looking into it and will let everyone know what’s happening,” it wrote when asked about the delay.
