Game developer DICE finally announced that the first major update of Battlefield V will launch soon after it was delayed just recently.
Battlefield V upcoming update delayed
DICE announced that the first major update Chapter 1: Overture has now officially been delayed from its schedule launch tomorrow. There were no specific details as to why the schedule was pushed back, but it seems to be that there were some unforeseen issues. This was a good move by the developers because they did not want to cause more problems by implementing a faulty or incomplete major update to the game.
The team has discovered an issue with the #Battlefield Chapter 1: Overture update. Rather than create issues in the game, we’re holding the update for the time being. We don’t anticipate a long delay and we’ll be back with more news tomorrow or as soon as we have it. pic.twitter.com/bc6xlWPc8e

After the delay, DICE once again took to Twitter to announce the official launching of the major update. It will now launch on Dec. 5, which is just a few hours later. The developers still did not give any specific details as to why it was delayed a while back.
Good news! The #Battlefield Chapter 1: Overture update is locked and loaded for deployment tomorrow, December 5th.
Our sincerest apologies for the delay. The team agreed it was best for the game’s health to hold off and fix the issues, so thank you for being so understanding! pic.twitter.com/2x3NvbGU7s
