It looks like the Australian branch of EB Games let the cat out the bag for a new Fast and the Furious title for Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 called Fast & Furious Showdown.
According to the store listing, Showdown is published by Activision and creates a storyline that ties earlier Fast and the Furious movies with Fast & Furious 6. This new title unveils co-op with a friend or with the computer for all thirty-one missions varying between racing, pursuing, stealth, stealing and destruction.
While Activision is being silent on the subject, it’s not so surprising that a game such as Showdown would be in the works since Fast & Furious 6 will be in theaters soon. The EB listing showed a release date of 5/22, which is two days before Fast & Furious 6 hits theaters, so it's safe to say that it will release in North America around the same time. Here are the details that the EB Games listing showed before the retailer pulled the page:
