Battlefield 3’s release confirmed as 25 October

In what seems to be a cheeky move to steal a bit of Modern Warfare 3’s thunder, Battlefield 3 has announced a 25 October release date.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is of course currently slated for a 8 November release, a couple of weeks after this.
Hopefully Battlefield 3 aren’t rushing their release just for a quick one-up over their FPS military shooter rival.
