Founder Pack Redemption and new zone

I just read the news that you are going to set up a competely new European zone. I’m perfectly willing to switch to that zone once it is online, but how will that work out with the founder pack redemption, as this is a limited offer the expires today? Do I need to make an interim character on a low population server to redeem it first?
I have a pltinum pack, and tbh, without the chance of taking that with me, I have no intention to switch.
