We haven’t heard much from DICE regarding Battlefield 2042, and it seems there’s good reason for that, as the game has been delayed! It’s still shipping this 2021, thankfully, and the new Battlefield 2042 release date is now November 19, 2021.
DICE penned a letter to fans explaining the decision.
Battlefield 2042 New Release Date: November 19, 2021

“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. 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.”
“Your enthusiasm for the game has been very inspiring. We believe in the game we’re making, and we thank you for your patience as we put some finishing touches into the experience.”
An announcement regarding the beta will take place later this month.
It’s not surprising given the radio slience the past few weeks, but at least it’s just a month’s delay, which is understandable given the on-going pandemic and whatnot.
Are you OK with the delay or bummed out? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below.
