Battlefield: Hardline was initially scheduled to come out this month, but has been pushed back to next March.
If you’re looking to satisfy your Battlefield itch and Star Wars: Battlefront‘s Holiday, 2015 release date is too long for you to wait, DICE has just announced that its upcoming cops ‘n robbers Battlefield 4 spin-off: Battlefield: Hardline is coming out next March.
“Hit the streets of Battlefield: Hardline March 17, 2015 on PlayStation4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC,” posted DICE on its Battlefield blog. Battlefield: Hardline was initially slated to be released this month, but it’s open beta was rather lackluster, and was followed by a slew of complaints from fans, which led to EA deciding to delay the game to add “more innovation”.
Many speculated the delay was at least partly due to the backlash surrounding Battlefield 4‘s sloppy launch, which even EA admitted recently was “unacceptable”.
“In a crime drama filled single player story, Miami is embroiled in a drug war and officer Nick Mendoza has just made detective. Alongside his partner, veteran detective Khai Minh Dao, he follows the drug supply chain from the streets to the source. In a series of increasingly off-the-books cases the two detectives come to realize that power and corruption can affect both sides of the law,” writes DICE of the game.
You can pre-order the game right now from various outlets, including Origin for the PC version. Personally, I think I’m gonna wait for the reviews on this one. Fool me once, EA…
