Battlefield V was all set to launch in October but as the launch was getting closer, rumors about the state of the game started to appear online. Some of them were about the game lacking content like co-op mode, which would release after launch like the battle royale mode, and others pointed towards a low number of pre-orders for it hence signaling towards a potential delay.
EA has now officially announced today that Battlefield V will be now delayed to November. They have given it a new release date of November 20, which is almost a month from the original release.
Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE commented on the delay assuring the fans that this was done to make sure the game meets the expectations of fans and they will look at the feedback from the open beta to see what kind of changes can be made to it before launch.
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.
Battlefield V will now launch on November 20th, 2018, for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
