Battlefield 2042s The October 22 release date is rumored to be delayed, according to reports from insiders of the game. However, Battlefield fans shouldn’t be too worried, as the release date is expected to move back a few weeks rather than a few. month.
GamesBeats Jeff Grubb was the first to hint at a imminent delay of an upcoming singular major game release, which he later revealed was Battlefield 2042 on his Discord. Grubbs’ claims have since been backed up by notable Battlefield insider Tom Henderson, who tweeted that Battlefield 2042 is due to be delayed for several weeks, with a release date slated for late November.
Developer EA Dice remains silent on the dates for Battlefield 2042’s open beta, which is expected to arrive in September. But with two weeks remaining in September and still no word from Dice, Battlefield 2042’s delay seems increasingly likely – but the developer hasn’t confirmed it.
Opinion: Battlefield and Call of Duty re-enter the Octagon
If Battlefield 2042 does end up being postponed to November, well, see the veteran FPS once again battling its bitter rival Call of Duty. The next Call of Duty: Vanguard is slated for release on November 5, the same month, rumored Battlefield 2042 will be delayed.
It will be interesting to see if Battlefield 2042 matches or exceeds the quality of Call of Duty: Vanguard, as Battlefield’s latest title (Battlefield 5) left some fans unimpressed. But while Call of Duty sticks to its proven formula this time around, EA Dice has chosen to try something new with 2042, a move that could win back those jaded by the latest entry in the series. With a focus on the evolution of the chaotic sandbox game of the series and massive multiplayer battles, while adding new features such as extreme weather conditions, Battlefield 2042 is expected to be the most popular battleground. ambitious to date.
Looks like Vanguard has some serious competition. And, as it stands, my money is on Battlefield 2042. If Dice and EA can deliver their vision of Battlefield 2042 with unprecedented, massive, all-out warfare on a scale never seen before, then Call of Duty will likely reside. permanently on my library in November.
