Fireteam Raven Locations List
https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/halo-fireteam-raven-location-list
I'm super hyped to play this game, but sadly the Arcade scene has died here in the UK and some of my mainland friends have said that they don't have arcades over there either.

I am curious how this game will be distributed about for Halo fans to play in such areas as the arcade scene is dead outside of retro-focused arcades.
I have always been a fan of Arcade Shooters (Time Crisis series, Aliens, Jurassic Park, etc) so this is one I really want to play it with my mates.

Only major Arcade that is close to me is the Namco Funscape in London (200 miles away and in a different country), maybe one or two others in the UK, but I really can not think of where I would be able to play.

I have no clue about the situation over in mainland Europe other than what has been told to me, so I hope that 343i, Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix can get this right for us all.
Bring it to London pleaseee.
Arcades are dead for a long time in western Europe for over a decade. In geek-focused-stores maybe, but they are more in the old arcade / nostolgia thing than in releasing brand new arcade game - in France at least.
perhaps put it on xbox arcade

BandaiNamco have exclusive distribution rights for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

There are 8 Namco Funscapes in the UK and there's been a hint from 343i one could be in the London location (though that said: it's a big machine and there could be space issues). However: I would expect independent locations and places like Bowling Alleys which have arcade sections will be interested too.

The numbers you're saying there though sound extremely low when you look at the numbers which have been shown on the production line
I guess I'll never going to play it no chance for a release here in Germany

Hope you get it there at some point, I really do. I feel all Halo fans should get a chance at some point.

I've been speaking to a guy involved in sales and distribution for Europe and it sounds like they're pushing it pretty hard and it should be pretty widely available: UK coverage still not confirmed but I was pleasantly surprised by the numbers they were talking about. Plenty of people probably still will need to travel unless they have an arcade very nearby, but should be alright
I hope it comes to canada

Same, just keep wishing and hopefully it ships to you at some point, no matter the odds. When Fireteam Raven was first announced, I was really hyped but also bummed at the same time because I expected it to solely distribute throughout the US and never hit Singapore, where I live. Amazingly, just last week, it was announced that Singapore would be the first place in Asia to have the game. Apparently an arcade establishment here wants to celebrate its 40th anniversary or something by ordering the sweet sweet machine. Anyways, I really hope that Germany gets its own Fireteam Raven experience at some point, buddy!
They probably won't come here tho, sad truth

Still waiting to hear specifics (especially those which can be announced publicly), however as I say above: I was pleasantly surprised by the number of machines which sound like they are coming to the UK according to the distributors and to be honest Germany sounds like it's a bigger market for the distributors than the UK.

Where is here?
The game has appeared in Australia and the Singapore so far. I could have swore that I saw something about Fireteam Raven coming to a certain chain of stores in the UK and Europe but I can't seem to find the article. Rest assured though, I have no doubt they'll arrive in the UK and Europe before much longer

Apparently a number of locations which are getting it in the UK at least (whether the Namco Funscape chain locations and/or other) are really busy during the summer anyway, therefore very little will be said or marketed (even if the things are in place) until after the summer peak is over and Schools go back in September.

Increasingly looking like the HCS event in London is going to be tied to the launch I'd have said...
I hope it comes to canada
There's a D&B in Toronto as far as I know.
But yeah, I wish there were more.

I'm in Vancouver, myself.
Luckily I've been able to drive down to Portland a couple of times for some other reasons and was able to play while I was there.

If you live close to the border, there might be a D&B on the US side somewhere near you!

I'm just glad that the game will be appearing in the UK. :) I know quite a few fans, and friends of mine, are eager to have a chance at playing

Amen to that.

I have been speaking to the distributors, but things are going quiet whereas initially they were very upbeat so I think that probably indicates the plan is to make a big announcement and avoid information dripping out piecemeal.

I would imagine that is the plan. I know anytime I went to my local Dave and Busters and asked about the game coming in, everyone was excited and eager to see it as well. If people over in the UK are very "hush hush" then yeah, I would imagine there's going to be a big reveal event of some sort. That should be alot of fun
For my fellow UKian's - "It's official! Halo: Fireteam Raven has landed in the UK at Hollywood Bowl Leeds."
