GameStop's Midnight Launches May Not Be Well Staffed
If you're planning to attend any midnight launch event at GameStop, you may have to wait in line for a while.
Midnight launches have become awfully popular for massive games like Call of Duty, and there's a darn good chance that many GameStop locations will have midnight launch events for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this month.
However, according to a source speaking to OmniGamer, the retailer has been forced to cut back midnight launch employee hours by 30-40 percent. That's pretty darn significant and it could impact any and all upcoming launch parties your local store(s) have planned. Lower-than-expected sales of this past week's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4 have resulted in the cutback, so only one employee might be present at a midnight launch.
Of course, there may be a great many people who are waiting to get either or both of those titles for a next-gen console. I know I am.
