EA has announced that Battlefield 2042 will no longer make its proposed October launch, citing “unforeseen challenges” for the development teams at DICE, Criterion, Ripple Effect, and EA Gothenburg. The game is now set to release in November.

“Building the next generation of Battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams,” a tweet from the official Battlefield Twitter explains. “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.”

The statement from DICE studio General Manager Oskar Gabrielson continues: “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."

It concludes: “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.” Gabrielson adds that updates on the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta will be ”coming later this month".

Battlefield 2042 will now be heading to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on 19th November 2021.

  • A one month delay won’t do anything really. I fear this game at launch will be as bad as, if not worse than, BF4’s abysmal launch.
  • @Creasy007 You know nothing Creasy.
  • Place your bets on if this game gets moved again into 2022 lol
  • @JuggernautClone: 50 bucks it will haha.
  • @KC1294 the lack of marketing and now a generic one month delay says otherwise. It’s either releasing in a real buggy state or it’s pushing to 2022.
  • @JuggernautClone
    That's not going to happen. They will get the holiday period for sales. They need the sales and they won't let CoD have a field day for this sales period.

    I wonder if the lack of hype train mean they don't have much confidence in it themselves. Future setting haven't done to well with their core audience (BF 2142, CoD Advanced/Infinite Warfare).
  • So they cut out the entire campaign and still can't reach the release date.......
  • You guys know nothing the hype on this game is huge every single call of duty player I know is ditching it for BF alot of them BF first timers
