Battlefield 5 has been delayed to November, from its earlier October 19th release date. The potential WW2-shooter will now arrive on November 20th.
DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson announced the delay today, stating a number of contributing factors. Battlefield 5’s Open Beta is just around the corner, i.e., arriving September 5th, which is one of the prime reasons for the delay.
DICE is constantly working on improving the core gameplay, Battlefield’s new live-service “Tides of War”, and other prominent features – squad play, revamped player movement, improved weapons handling, gameplay tempo adjustments, soldier visibility improvisation and player friction reduction.
DICE wants Battlefield 5 to shine as 2018’s perfect shooter by delivering a flawless game to its dedicated community. Oskar said, “We fully expect to see even more feedback coming our way.”
“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.”
