Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Dice have announced their decision to delay Battlefield 2042 until November.
While the upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter will miss its initial October launch, details regarding how Battlefield 2042's delay impacts its planned open beta will be shared later in September.
"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," reads a statement from the developer.
"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."
Battlefield 2042's delay will, thankfully, not push the title to next year, so we should still get our fill of modern multiplayer action during the holidays. If you'd like a refresher on the tools we'll get to use while battling across the game's 128-player maps, these are the weapons, classes, and vehicles revealed so far.
