Game developer DICE recently announced that upcoming video game sequel Battlefield V will be delayed to November for more adjustments.
Battlefield V delay reason
The upcoming video game will now have a one month delay, which makes the new release date Nov. 20, according to DICE. Its previous release date was supposed to be Oct. 19. General manager Oskar Gabrielson explained that the studio wants to make some final adjustments to core gameplay. This is due to the feedback they received during its prior closed alphas and the recent demos at E3 and Gamescom.
Gabrielson said that the player feedback has inspired the studio to make a lot of tweaks to the core gameplay. These tweaks include adjusting the gameplay tempo, improving soldier visibility, and reducing player friction. Some of those changes were already implemented with the game’s upcoming Open Beta that starts this coming Sept. 6.
Some fans might be depressed about this move, but Gabrielson assured the fans that they will give them the best Battlefield sequel. He also confidently said that this will be one of the best of the series on their hands. With the additional time to make some changes, hopefully they will keep their promise.
