I'm just curious but are other's surprised at the unusual release date for this game?

(Normally games would be released on a Tuesday in North America then on the Friday in the UK/Europe, but AC:3 is seemingly released globally in the middle of the week, could that be to avoid the release of other games? or just a publisher making sure that evreyone gets the game at the same time?)
