Walmart May Cancel PS5 Orders After March 18 Restock

Walmart made headlines with its March 18 PS5 restock, but after lengthy delays, the retailer may have to cancel some orders.

Lately, it seems harder than ever to get hold of a PS5. Despite being 5 months into the console’s lifespan, stock is not appearing in large numbers anywhere, least of all Walmart.

Despite promising a major PS5 restock on March 18, Walmart is still yet to ship many of the orders placed by eager fans. A couple of weeks ago, we reported that fans were still questioning Walmart’s PS5 shipping delays, and things haven’t changed much.

Now, it seems that Walmart may be giving up on certain PS5 orders completely.

If you’re still looking for a PlayStation 5, why not rely on our PS5 stock trackers to let you know exactly when consoles are in stock?

Walmart Canceling PS5 Purchases – March 18 Restock

New reports indicate that those customers who ordered a PS5 in the March 18 restock at Walmart may be seeing cancellations.

If you bought a PS5 on March 18, you may already have a notice from Walmart suggesting that your order may be canceled. The retailer indicates that your order may be experiencing a delay due to high demand.

However, it goes on to state that Walmart will let you know when your items ship or if a cancellation is required. Thankfully, at least, card charges only apply upon successful shipping of an item.

This delay and possible cancellation is leading fans to consider the fact that Walmart may be selling consoles that it doesn’t yet have in stock. And many PS5 hopefuls are staying clear of Walmart as a result.

By all accounts, reports suggest that it’s going to be a disappointing month for PS5 restocks.

Yesterday, fans everywhere were eyeing up a major Best Buy PS5 restock, only to be met with disappointment. Now it’s looking like we’re not going to hear any more about the consoles coming back into stores until next week at the earliest.

But don’t forget, you can still claim these free games even without a PS5. That way, you can be ready when your next-gen console is finally here.

And in case you missed it, there’s a new The Last of Us and Uncharted game confirmed for PS5!

I ordered mine on the 18 got it april 12th however I kept calling Walmart customer service and bugging them. I don’t know if that had anything to do with it or just plan luck.

Something has to be done about the scalpers and bots. This is beyond ridiculous at this point.
