Battlefield 2042, the next big AAA shooter from Electronic Arts and developer DICE, has been delayed. Luckily for eager fans, this isn’t a 2022 delay. Rather, just a few more weeks are being added to the allotted time with the game now targeted for a November 19, 2021 launch date.
The official statement was posted on various channels and feeds, and you can see it below as well:
This news should come as no surprise to anyone really, as it’s a similar story we’ve seen play out several times at this point. With the COVID-19 pandemic rattling on much longer than anyone expected, companies such as DICE still can’t safely return to the office, therefore still have to deal with the challenges of building a videogame remotely.
