Now the game is scheduled to be released on November 19th
Battlefield 2042 has announced that the game, which was scheduled to be released on October 22nd has now been postponed to release on November 19th.
In a press statement released on Twitter, the company cited the pandemic and lockdowns to be the reason for this delay, “Building the next generation of the battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams. Given the scale and the scope of the game, we had hoped our team would be back in our studios together as we move towards the launch.”
The company further adds that though the pandemic did not let it release on time, the company is taking this extra time to work on the final touches for a better experience for its users. “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. We believe in the game we’re making, and we thank you for your patience as we put some finishing touches into the experience.”
