However, an alleged leak from a trusted source within GameStop management cited that the big launch will be postponed by a couple of months.

After the replacement stickers have been forwarded, the adjusted promotional materials are expected to be displayed on Aug. 15, 2016. An official announcement may also follow thereafter.

Game stores were instructed to replace the September 30 release date with a sticker indicating a November 29 launch date. The assembled standee showed the official date on the bottom of a bigger image showing the silhouette of a character wielding a huge sword.
