COVID strikes again.
Battlefield 2042 has been delayed to 19 November, EA, DICE and Ripple Effect have today announced.
The title was first expected to debut on 22 October.
“Building the next generation of Battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams,” a post on Twitter reads. “Given the scale and concept of the game, we had hoped our teams would be back in our studios together as we move towards launch. With the ongoing conditions not allowing that to happen safely, and with all the hard work the teams are doing from home, we feel it is important to take the extra time to deliver on the vision of Battlefield 2042 for our players.
“Your enthusiasm for the game has been very inspiring. We believe in the game we’re making, and we thank you for your patience as we put some finishing touches into the experience.”
The game’s open beta is also seemingly delayed, with more information coming soon.
Battlefield 2042 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5 on 19 November.
