Whether or not this has been officially announced, it seems that rumors have been spreading around the larger gaming sites claiming that EA will be releasing Shift 2 as early as the First Quarter of 2011. More details will be revealed once the rumor has been confirmed, or pushed into the light with an announcement teaser trailer.

For now, you can go through the game sites yourself and see if you can find all the pieces.
