Battlefield 2042, which was set to debut on October 22nd, is one of Electronic Arts’ (EA) most anticipated titles of the year. However, the game has been postponed owing to COVID-19-related issues, according to the business. The game’s release date has been moved to November.
EA said in a press release that Battlefield 2042 will be delayed until November and will not be released in October. The firm has not specified a specific release date for the game, but it has claimed that it would be launched before the end of November.
While many games have faced and continue to face Covid delays, the good news is that Battlefield is not one of them, with the game coming this year rather than in 2022. In addition, EA has stated that the game’s Open Beta testing will begin near the end of September.
In a press release, DICE GM Oskar Gabrielson remarked, “Given the complexity and scope of the game, we had hoped our teams would be back in our studios together as we progress towards launch.” “We feel it is important to take the extra time to deliver on the vision of Battlefield 2042 for our players,” he added. “With the current 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.”
At debut, Battlefield 2042 will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Windows. It will take place in the year 2042, providing a good mix of futuristic, modern, and vintage gaming aspects. It will feature a new ‘All-Out War’ mode as well as a ‘Hazard Zone’ in the Battlefield franchise.
Players would have to deal with a variety of obstacles in the game, such as natural calamities such as tornadoes, while also waging war.
