EA heeft ons vandaag laten weten dat we iets langer moeten wachten, omdat Battlefield 5 uitgesteld is naar november. Volgens een statement hebben EA en DICE de feedback van de closed beta erg serieus genomen. Daaruit is het besluit gekomen dat er nog kleine aanpassingen nodig zijn voordat de release plaats zal vinden. Ook zal de ontwikkelaar extra tijd hebben om aanpassingen te doen die naar voren komen tijdens de open beta, die volgende week plaats zal vinden.
Hieronder kun je de officiële statement lezen:
Today, we’re announcing that Battlefield V will have a new launch date – November 20, 2018. I wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we arrived at this new date.
Over the summer, we’ve had tens of thousands of players get their hands on the game during our Closed Alphas and at E3 and Gamescom – where we were honored to receive the awards for Best Multiplayer Game at both shows.
You have told us that you are seeing an increased focus on squad play come through, you are also feeling the difference in our revamped player movement and we are getting a lot of positive feedback for our improved weapons handling.
You’ve also spurred us to make some meaningful improvements to the core gameplay experience, including adjusting the gameplay tempo, improving soldier visibility and reducing player friction. You’ll see a lot of these reflected in our Open Beta that starts on September 6.
We believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands. A game that will deliver on an emotional journey through the return of unseen single player War Stories, a deep multiplayer experience, Battle Royale, along with our new live service, Tides of War – a journey across multiple theaters of WW2 and designed to keep our community together.
