​Battlefield 5 Has Been Delayed, EA DICE Announce

​Battlefield 5 Has Been Delayed, EA DICE Announce

First it was Spyro, and now this; according to a lengthy announcement on EA's website, Battlefield V has been delayed.

Titled "An Update On Battlefield V," Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE, explains that the first-person shooter will now launch on November 20, 2018. But why?

Gabrielson says: "We've had tens of thousands of players get their hands on the game during our Closed Alphas and at E3 and Gamescom.

"You have told us that you are seeing an increased focus on squad play come through, you are also feeling the difference in our revamped player movement and we are getting a lot of positive feedback for our improved weapons handling.

"You've also spurred us to make some meaningful improvements to the core gameplay experience, including adjusting the gameplay tempo, improving soldier visibility and reducing player friction. You'll see a lot of these reflected in our Open Beta that starts on September 6.

"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.

"We know moving the launch date means that we all have to wait a little longer. But we're going to take our time to make sure we get it right."

Despite the actual release being delayed, the open BETA in September has not changed - so you can still enjoy some Battlefield V before the new November release date.
