EA is finally shifting the Battlefield 2042 release date to November 19 … because of the Covid-19.
Big surprise, another game has just been postponed due to the global pandemic. It is Battlefield 2042, EA’s next shooter that was originally slated for release on October 22. With just over a month to wait before being able to enjoy it, players will eventually have to wait for double the time, since it has been postponed until November 19.
On Twitter, EA explains:
« Building the next generation of Battlefields during a global pandemic created unforeseen challenges for our development teams. Given the scale and scope of the game, we had hoped that our teams would be back together in our studios as the launch nears.
With current conditions unsafe, and teams working hard from home, we believe it is important to take the extra time necessary to achieve our vision of Battlefield 2042 for our players. ».
An open beta on the way
However, in this bad news lies a silver lining for the players. Indeed, it seems that an open beta is planned for soon and that more information on this subject will be communicated by EA. in the next two weeks. Players will therefore still be able to test the game before its launch date.
As a reminder, the game is available for pre-order on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC. While the health situation seems to be improving, let’s hope that this is one of the last headlines to be postponed because of the global pandemic which has lasted for almost two years now.
