It’s been announced by EA that the highly-anticipated Battlefield V has been delayed.
The good news is that DICE has confirmed that the delay is down to feedback from its community, which means delaying the game could be the smartest decision to ensure players get the experience they deserve from day one.

Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE has stated on the EA website: “Today, we’re announcing that Battlefield V will have a new launch date – November 20, 2018. I wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we arrived at this new date.
“Over the summer, we’ve had tens of thousands of players get their hands on the game…
“You have told us that you are seeing an increased focus on squad play come through, you are also feeling the difference in our revamped player movement and we are getting a lot of positive feedback for our improved weapons handling.
“You’ve also spurred us to make some meaningful improvements to the core gameplay experience…
“We believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands. A game that will deliver on an emotional journey through the return of unseen single player War Stories, a deep multiplayer experience, Battle Royale, along with our new live service, Tides of War – a journey across multiple theaters of WW2 and designed to keep our community together.
“With the Open Beta just around the corner, we are excited about the millions of you who will join us and experience the game. And we fully expect to see even more feedback coming our way.
“And that’s why we’re moving our launch date. 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 Tides of War.
“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.
“Thank you for your continued passion and support. We can’t wait to see you on the battlefield in just a few days.”
