Originally scheduled for an October release, Battlefield V has been, in brief, delayed. In a statement EA confirmed the news that the World War II inspired shooter would not make it’s original October 19th release date. It’s now aiming for November 20th, a full month later, in order to fine-tune the game.
“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.”
Speaking about the delay, general manager of DICE Oskar Gabrielson noted “…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. You can read the full statement over on the EA website.
In some good news, the open beta for Battlefield V will still go ahead as planned on September 6th.
