Did Xbox accidentally leak Need For Speed release date?



The Xbox Games Store may have accidentally leaked the release date for EA's latest Need for Speed instalment.

According to Reddit, the mistake was rectified and the page pulled pretty sharpish, but not before a clever soul used the magic of screen capture and snapped it for prosperity

Since then, however, it appears as though the page has been revised again and the release date re-added -- November 3, 2015 for North America, and November 5 in Europe.

We knew a new Need for Speed game was coming following EA's financials earlier this month, but the description of the game, and accompanying release date, had not yet been disclosed formally by EA.

"Carve your own unique path, via multiple overlapping stories, gaining reputation on your journey to become the ultimate icon," reads the blurb. "Discover the nocturnal open world of urban car culture, driven by 5 ways to play and win in this thrilling reboot of Need for Speed".

The five ways to play are detailed as: Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw, with Ventura Bay listed as your "urban playground" -- "from downtown, the harbour and the canyons, the city comes alive while you sleep."

Yeah, that last bit confuses me too. Are we supposed to be sleep-driving, EA?
