Battlefield 3 Release Date Leaked?
Fall is always the busiest time in gaming, and it's no surprise to see so many huge titles scheduled for that period.
In addition to games like Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Batman: Arkham City, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the great possibility of Mass Effect 3 and the new Call of Duty, yet another big title seems to have been scheduled for autumn: DICE's Battlefield 3. We knew it had been tentatively slated for "fall 2011" but now it seems a date of November 2, 2011 has been set. This is according to a screenshot found by CVG; it's a capture of the EA Download Manager, and the date is clear. However, it is odd that November 2 is not a Tuesday (new games typically release on Tuesday in North America) and EA hasn't officially confirmed anything just yet, so take this with a grain of salt. Still, nobody would be surprised if that date turned out to be accurate.
Featuring the awesome new Frostbite 2 engine, Battlefield 3 is already perceived by many to be a front-runner for Shooter of the Year.
