‘Battlefield V’ Release Date Pushed Back Into November
You'll have to wait a little longer
EA has changed the release date for “Battlefield V” pushing the game back over a month to work on the title. The game’s release date is being pushed back by four weeks, the confirmation was made today during the publisher’s earning call. EA also updated the company’s fiscal year 2019 net bookings guidance from $5.55 billion to $5.20 billion, a move the publisher stated was because of foreign exchange rates.
Now “Battlefield V” will launch on November 20, 2018, which gives you more time to pre-order at least. In a statement released today by Oskar Gabrielson, the General Manager added, “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.” Gabrielson continued, “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’ve got one of the best Battlefield games ever coming in Battlefield V,” said Laura Miele, Chief Studios Officer, Electronic Arts. “Tens of thousands of players have been hands on with the game so far, and we’ve been honored to receive best multiplayer awards at E3 and Gamescom. We’ve had valuable feedback from our community, and we’re going to take the time to make some final adjustments and deliver a great experience for our fans.”
“We’re updating our fiscal year guidance to reflect the updated launch date for Battlefield V, the ongoing impact of foreign exchange rate changes, and our current outlook for our mobile business,” said COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen. “Our core businesses, including FIFA Ultimate Team, are strong, we think our players are going to love Battlefield V, and excitement is building for our new IP, Anthem.”
