Blaze, the company behind the excellent Evercade series of retro systems, has claimed that stock worth over £500,000 has been stolen.
According to the statement released by the British company, in the early hours of December 6th, a lorry carrying Evercade EXP Limited Edition stock was subject to a suspected targeted robbery. Thankfully, nobody was harmed during the theft.
The units in question were being moved to warehouses in preparation for their dispatch to those who had pre-ordered in the UK, USA, and the rest of the world. EU stock was not affected. Blaze states that 'standard edition' units of the system – which launches on December 15th – are also unaffected.
Blaze has moved quickly to provide a solution to those customers who were hoping to have the Evercade EXP Limited Edition in their hands in time for Christmas.
