Battlefield 2042 had a release date of October 22. Well, the game has now been delayed to November 19, and here’s the official statement from the developers –
“We’ve made the decision to shift the launch of battlefield 2042. The game will now be released worldwide on November 19th, 2021.
Building the next generation of Battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams. Given the scale and scope of the game, we had hoped our teams would be back in our studios together as we move towards launch. With the ongoing conditions not allowing that to happen safely, and with all the hard work the teams are doing from home, we feel it is important to take the extra time to deliver on the vision of Battlefield 2042 for our players.
Your enthusiasm for the game has been very inspiring. We believe in the game we’re making, and we thank you for your patience as we put some finishing touches into the experience.
Updates on the Open Beta will be coming later this month.
Oskar Gabrielson & the Battlefield 2042 Development Team”

Game delays have become common due to the pandemic. Games like Hogwarts Legacy, Returnal, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake, and many more have been delayed during the last two years.
Fans have come to realize the situation and are accepting the delays in a much healthy way. Here are a few tweets –
Take whatever time you need to deliver ❤️

For the best. A delayed game can be great, but a pressed/rushed game tends to be not. Let this title shine, and I am personally super excited to play.
