• Battlefield V Delayed Until November; Beta Still on Track

    EA and DICE just announced that they have pushed back the release date for Battlefield V until November 20, 2018. This places the release at a period that's about one month after its originally planned October 19 release date.

    General manager of DICE Oskar Gabrielson, made the announcement today with a lengthy explanation as to the reason why.

    We believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands. A game that will deliver on an emotional journey through the return of unseen single player War Stories, a deep multiplayer experience, Battle Royale, along with our new live service, Tides of War - a journey across multiple theaters of WW2 and designed to keep our community together.

    With the Open Beta just around the corner, we are excited about the millions of you who will join us and experience the game. And we fully expect to see even more feedback coming our way.

    And that’s why we’re moving our launch date. We’re going to take the time to continue to make some final adjustments to core gameplay, and to ensure we really deliver on the potential of Tides of War.

    The companies have also made it very clear that this does not affect the upcoming open beta. It is still scheduled to take place starting on September 6.

    You know what? This is honestly for the best.

    It gives the team an extra month to get some content ready for launch. It also gives the team another month to iron whatever major issues there may be. This delay also means that it's not going to get absolutely eaten alive by being sandwiched between Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2. The new release date means that the game's biggest release competition is Fallout 76 on the 14th and Darksiders III on the 27th.
