Battlefield 2042 seems like a renaissance for fans of the Battlefield series. While the previous Battlefield V did have its merits here and there, fans of the series had issues with a lot of the direction the series was taking. With this latest installment bringing us back to “modern” warfare though, and the new Battlefield Portal incentivizing both creativity and hilarity, there’s a lot of reasons to believe this is a new, bright age for the series to go in. From the looks of things though, and following some rumors circulating of a potential delay on the horizon, said rumors appear to have been true (but not as bad as you think). Battlefield 2042 has been delayed by a few weeks, now settings its sights for a release on November 19, 2021. The news was officially announced on the series’ Twitter page.

The teams at DICE, Criteron, and Ripple Effect cite the reasoning for the delay being the pandemic, and the inability to return to a workplace environment to ensure maximum productivity. As such, things have been moving a bit slower as remote work is known to do. With that, a few more weeks in the oven should ensure that quality is up to standard when Battlefield 2042 releases on November 19. Given this could be a strong direction for Battlefield going forward, I personally don’t mind waiting just a few more weeks. The holiday season of games is packed enough as it is, not to mention we have the open beta with details to come quite soon.
When it does finally reach our hands though, Battlefield 2042 is likely to be great. With the next step in their Levolution technology bringing out mass destruction at a grand scale, there’s bound to be plenty of new ways to take down your foe. And with Battlefield Portal and the base game being developed as time goes on, the team is only just getting started.
