Retailers always set the date to the last possible one. We know it's coming in October 2013 so by default all retailers put 31st October 2013.The fact that it's the day of Halloween is pure coincidence. Though it's not impossible for it to happen.
That's called a "placeholder date." They don't know the actual release date, so they just put in the last day of October until then. The employee was lying to you or was misinformed.I wouldn't be surprised if they wait until the last Sunday in October, though. (27th)
Say it with me: "Placeholder Date."
The original placeholder date was November 1st. This was a recent update.
