Battlefield V Gets Delayed to November 20; DICE Making "Final Adjustments to Core Gameplay"

As one of the most anticipated games of the fall season, Battlefield V will surely deliver a heart-pounding and thrilling experience for shooter fans everywhere, though the game will now have a new launch date that sets it back just slightly to later this year.

Developer DICE has announced today that Battlefield V will have a new launch date of November 20th, 2018, marking about a one month delay from the title’s previously-announced release date of October 19th, 2018.

In a blog post on the new release date, DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson explained that the main reason behind the new launch date is that the studio is working to make “some final adjustments to core gameplay” as a result of player feedback received during the game’s prior closed alphas, and recent demos of the game at E3 and Gamescom.

Specifically, Gabrielson explained that player feedback has driven the studio to make tweaks to the core gameplay such as “adjusting the gameplay tempo, improving soldier visibility and reducing player friction,” with some of those changes already set to implemented with the game’s upcoming Open Beta that begins on September 6th, 2018.

While the news may dishearten those that were looking forward to jumping into battle in October, Gabrielson added in the announcement that “we believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands,” and hopefully with the additional time to polish and tweak the game, it will live up to its promise.

Battlefield V will now release on November 20th, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
