While we wait for an official statement regarding the upcoming Battlefield 3 patch from developers at DICE, leaked information has hit the internet revealing a date for two of the three platforms.
Community website Battlefieldo seems to have received word of a release date thanks to “multiple inside sources.” These sources state that Battlefield 3 players can expect to download the patch on March 27th. Unfortunately, they also stated that this date only applies to the PC and PS3 version of Battlefield 3, while an Xbox 360 release date is still up in the air. Of course, official word from DICE will be able to clear this up once it becomes available.
Initially, DICE hinted at releasing both an official date and patch notes today, but due to unforeseen circumstances, it looks like these announcements will be delayed. Community Manager Daniel “zh1nt0” Matros commented, “had to pull back the post because of complications as usual.” Additionally, Lead Designer Gustav Halling stated, “there are a few questions we have to get answered to before announcing the patch notes. Me and zh1nt0 will let u know when we can.”
While we wait for an official statement and further details regarding patch notes, you can read over the previously released notes right here. Make sure to stay tuned to MP1st on Twitter and Facebook further announcements regarding the upcoming Battlefield 3 patch.
Update: Daniel Matros has confirmed that “the upcoming patch will include commo-rose improvements for PC as well as minimap improvements for PC.” Specifically, 3 new mini map modes will be available: Satellite, hybrid and detailed. He also confirmed that DICE has “a set date for PS3.” However, they “are working on getting a set date for Xbox 360 and PC.” He lastly added an apology to the Battlefield community: “Terribly sorry for all of the mix ups with the dates. Sometimes things get pulled back.”
