Fantasy Flight Games is one of many companies that have been impacted by the west coast shipping conflict between workers and management. As such, they’ve given us an update about what products are going to be late.
Unfortunately, it includes Armada, the game I’ve really been waiting to get.
From the announcement:
Because of the recent dispute between the Pacific Maritime Association and the workers of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, ship unloading operations have been hampered.
We are hopeful that current shipping issues will be resolved quickly. Unfortunately, the continuing port slowdowns have affected any merchandise manufactured in Asia and imported to the United States, including several upcoming Fantasy Flight Games products.

Based on where a product is in the process of being unloaded, the exact length of the delay may vary. The current backlog of unloaded containers also means that these delays will continue for some time after the shipping complications are resolved. We will continue to release updates as we receive more information, and we look forward to the time when our releases will continue unhindered.
Thank you for your patience!
