Need for Speed: Rivals Coming November 21, Could Hint At Xbox One Release Date

EA announced today that Need for Speed: Rivals, an Xbox One launch title, has a November 21, 2013, release date for current generation consoles. This seems relevant, and it could hint at the launch date for Xbox One.

If we put the launch list up against this new information (assuming that the next-generation versions won't launch before the current-generation titles), it puts the Xbox One's release even later than we expected. It's important to note however, that Need for Speed: Rivals could ship earlier or it could fall off the launch list.

This isn't confirmation of a launch date, but it does provide something interesting to consider.
