Shift 2: Unleashed release date slips a week

April 1 now the day for new Need for Speed

EA's quietly confirmed Need for Speed spin-off, Shift 2: Unleashed has slipped a week in the UK to April 1.

Previously the Slightly Mad-developed racer was scheduled for a March 25 release.


With Shift 2: Unleashed, EA is aiming to overtake its race rival Gran Turismo 5, which it described as "sterile" last year.
