Battlefield 3 Release Date May Have Been Outed by EA Download Manager
We’ve all been watching the gameplay videos from BF3 (here, here and here) and salivating over them. We’ve also been waiting to hear EA or DICE announce us a release date. Inadvertently, EA may have given us that as well.
A screen capture of the EA Download Manager over on CVG shows off a listing for Battlefield 3. The release date is listed as Nov. 2, 2011.
Now, this date seems a little odd, as it falls on a Wednesday. US releases typically fall on Tuesday, and European releases are normally on Friday. Still, the possibility of EA doing a major worldwide release on their very own day certainly isn’t out of the question. Plus, it’s right around the time when Activision traditionally releases the next installment of the Call of Duty series, which could mean a major confrontation is in the works.
We’ll have to wait and see if this pans out. For now, file it under “rumor.”
