It was always 23 in the UK. And yes EU release date sucks but it is a known fact that EU is always treated worse than US (where the game originates). Not a big deal. we're used to having everything late. Please don't quote isolated instances like "oh EUs get steelbook". That's a gimmick in comparison to having proper release dates with pre-order costumes.
