Hi. :)

Why is the game released 3 days earlier in the US than it is in Europe?

1st May in the U.S. and 4th May in Europe? Any particularly reason? It seems pointless to me.

you shouldn't be surprised with this, since this is pretty much common practice with almost every game.
The vast majority of games come first in America.
The reason for this is to match retail release days, in the states and Canada the retail release day is Tuesday while in Europe is Friday.
And before you say that this is a digital release, well there will be box copy version as well and the digital release has to honor the release of the retail version and release at the same date.

As mentioned, new games release in the US on a Tuesday and on a Friday in the UK.
