Dice’s upcoming Battlefield title, ‘Battlefield 2042,’ has been delayed by nearly a month, EA, Dice’s parent company, revealed on Wednesday. The game will now launch on November 19, rather than October 22.
According to The Verge, Oskar Gabrielson, studio GM at Dice, stated in a statement on behalf of the Battlefield 2042 team, “Building the next iteration of Battlefield during a global epidemic has presented unexpected obstacles for our development teams.”
Additionally, he stated, “Given the game’s size and breadth, we had anticipated to see our teams reunited in our facilities as we neared launch. With the current conditions preventing that from happening safely, and with the amount of work the teams are undertaking from home, we believe it is critical to take the additional time necessary to deliver on the goal for Battlefield 2042 for our players.”
However, Gabrielson stated that information regarding the game’s upcoming open beta will be published later this month, allowing fans to test the game ahead of the game’s delayed premiere.
‘Battlefield 2042’ is the latest game to be delayed in part because to the pandemic’s complications.
Other examples include ‘The Last of Us Part II’, which was delayed by about a month in 2020; ‘Halo Infinite’, which was delayed from its original November 2020 release date to coincide with the Xbox Series X / S launch; and PS5 exclusive ‘Deathloop’, which was released on Tuesday following two COVID-19-related delays.
According to The Verge, ‘Battlefield 2042’ will be accessible on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC upon release.
