This is mostly about the store, not about ACIV.
So I preordered ACIV collector's edition because I enjoyed the earlier games rather much. I preordered this at Game Mania, a Dutch/Belgian brick and mortar video store chain owned by the Free Record Shop group. I preordered it there because it's basically right around the corner from me.
but I learned today that the Free Record group is currently in financial issues. they're working on it though: an investor is having talks to take them over. talks are expected to last for about a month.
but I'm worried that something goes wrong and i'll lose my preorder. should I cancel my preorder or wait for a few weeks to see how things turn out?
