EA confirmed that Battlefield V, which was initially scheduled to launch on October 19, is now delayed by one month and will now release on November 20 instead.
The announcement of the delay came from Oskar Gabrielson, the general manager of DICE, which is the studio developing the game. Gabrielson mentioned that the primary reason for the delay is to give the developers enough time to ensure that the game is in its best version when it is launched to the market.
“We’re going to take the time to continue to make some final adjustments to core gameplay, and to ensure we really deliver on the potential of [new Battlefield live service] Tides of War,” Gabrielson said in a blog post on EA’s website. “We know moving the launch date means that we all have to wait a little longer. But we’re going to take our time to make sure we get it right.”
Battlefield V is now scheduled to launch on October 19 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
