UPDATE: EA UK has told VideoGamer.com that there is "no delay" to the Vita version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted, and reconfirmed that the game will launch on November 2 alongside other formats.

ORIGINAL STORY: The PlayStation Vita version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted has been delayed until spring 2013, EA's Polish website has suggested.

The Vita version had been due to ship alongside the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions on November 2. Those versions are still on track, the site states.

An explanation for the delay has not been given.

According to developer Criterion, the PlayStation Vita version of Most Wanted is "exactly the same game" as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, featuring the "same big open-world... same cars... same Autolog features and the same competition".

VideoGamer.com has contacted EA UK for comment.
