EA and DICE have announced the decision to delay Battlefield 2042 just a bit, moving its release date to November 19, 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S. General manager Oskar Gabrielson and the Battlefield 2042 development team provided a statement that explains the reason for the small change from the original October 22, 2021 release date. As with the many other delays seen throughout the last year and a half, EA and DICE blame unexpected complications related to the pandemic:

“Building the next generation of Battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams. 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. 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.”

Despite the delay, EA and DICE will provide an update later this month on the Battlefield 2042 open beta, as it seems the test may occur before September ends.

Battlefield 2042 was revealed in June as a campaign-less entry in EA’s war FPS. Along with various changes to the gameplay formula, the DICE game includes a Portal Mode that will allow fans to mix together every era the series has visited so far.
