The UK distributor for Take 2 is Exertis Gem, and they kindly publicly list all of the products they stock.

I've been keeping an eye on this one, and up until today it was marked as 'To Be Confirmed' (Google Cache)

It has now been updated to say 14th November. http://store.exertisgem.co.uk/product/?id=5026555416986

This ties in with Littlewoods adding a release date today (previous post) and that Australian company's leaflet saying 'November'.

On the basis Exertis Gem have no need to change from TBC to a specific date - I do not think this is a placeholder.

Update: listing has gone back to TBC, perhaps the ninjas came running. Image from before for reference, http://i.imgur.com/VUGMpNG.png

November 14 happens to be a Friday too, and Fridays are typically when games release in the UK.

Think there's more than enough weight for this to stand on.

And the week before Far Cry 4, LittleBigPlanet 3 and Dragon Age: Inquisition are released.

Goodbye any kind of money spending activity in November.

Indeed. Advanced Warfare looks good, Assassins Creed is due a week later, Dragon Age isnt far out, Far Cry, Project CARS, The Crew all hit in November and thats not including Octobers backlog of The Evil Within, Alien Isolation, Driveclub.

As a collective industry, surely they must realise the prospective audience only has finite funds and its effectively risking their product to be bought on the second hand market months later?

You'd figure these people would recognize the stupidity of their release scheduling.

And I foresee Far Cry getting delayed to early December. Count on it.

with the behemoth games like COD, AC and Halo. I think it will lose potential sales. If it was a new GTA then I would agree with you. But this is more than a year old game, with no marketing on additional content and stuff. For all we know its a graphical upgrade.

Why would a regular gamer spent 60$ on that and not on some new game. Nov 14 definitely sounds unbelievable.

To be fair, FC3 went up against CoD and and AC in 2012 too. And Halo MC isn't a new game either.

Especially when "months later" is equally packed. Subpar (imo) games like watchdogs are proof that you can shift copies in the early summer. I really hope the packed late 2014/early 2015 opens the eyes of the publishers.

On the bright side, the traditional drought has probably helped a ton of indie developers gain some well deserved recognition.
