Battlefield V delayed to avoid being sandwiched between Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2


EA on Thursday announced that Battlefield V will miss its original launch window by a full month. Initially scheduled to arrive on October 19, the game is being pushed back until November 20.

Oskar Gabrielson, general manager at DICE, offered up an explanation for the delay, saying the developer is taking the extra time to make final adjustments to core gameplay based on user feedback. According to Gabrielson, they’ve already made some meaningful improvements to the core experience such as improving soldier visibility, adjusting the gameplay tempo and reducing player friction. These changes and more will be reflected in the open beta set to kick off on September 6.
