Thanks for checking out our pre-orders section! A pre-order is any item we are able to offer you the chance to secure ahead of time by paying before the item comes out. Pre-orders are always shipped as soon as we receive the item in our store. Due to the nature of shipping times and publishers pushing back product releases, our release dates on each item are an estimate and are subject to change. Also, if your order contains both pre-order items and standard items, your order will not ship until all items become available to us. Thank you so much for checking us out.
