DICE’s Bat­tle­field 2042 will not be launch­ing on time, and the stu­dio con­firmed that the game will now be arriv­ing on Novem­ber 19th. It was sup­posed to release on Octo­ber 22nd, and it seems that this delay has been rumored for some time.

EA stat­ed the team did­n’t have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get back togeth­er in per­son to work on the fin­ish­ing touch­es. The extra time is need­ed because the game sim­ply won’t be ready by Octo­ber. The game is now poised to launch around the time of Halo Infinite’s release, but it now comes weeks after Call of Duty: Vanguard–instead of before it.

It’s been a long time com­ing for Bat­tle­field 2042’s release, since DICE already took an extra year to devel­op the game. This gave devel­op­ers more time to put into the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions.
