Battlefield 4 Naval Strike won’t be coming to PC tomorrow.
On the Battlelog, developer DICE announced that the studio has decided to delay the launch of Battlefield 4’s ocean combat-themed Naval Strike multiplayer expansion on the PC after discovering an issue. They also intend to hold off on release until work on a “larger update” is complete.
Here’s the note in their own words:
“However, we are delaying the launch of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC. We’ve detected an issue and it needs to be solved. Quality is our number one priority and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible. We are also working on a larger update to release alongside Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC that will address the issue of Tablet Commander not working correctly. Once we have a confirmed date for PC, we’ll be sure to update those players on our official channels. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing everyone on the Battlefield.”
It appears that the expansion’s launch on consoles is going according to schedule, so Premium members on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 will be able to get their hands on the new content in only a matter of hours.
Our hunch is that the delay might be attributed to the recently discovered security exploit that was directly linked to Battlefield 4’s Commander Mode causing servers to crash.
We’ll be sure to forward any updates from the studio, so keep your sights on MP1st.
In an update to DICE’s previous statement, the studio now tells us that PC and Xbox One users can expect Naval Strike to launch in “early April”.
