Battlefield 2042 is Delayed to November 19

Publisher Electronic Arts and developer DICE have announced Battlefield 2042 is delayed to November 19, forgoing its originally planned October 22 release date.

While Battlefield 2042 is delayed to November 19, the game will launch across Windows PC (via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Origin), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

Here’s the full message from DICE studio general manager Oskar Gabrielson regarding the delay:

We’ve made the decision to shift the launch of Battlefield 2042. The game will now be released worldwide on November 19th, 2021.

Building the next generation of Battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams. Given the scale and scope 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.

Updates on the Open Beta will be coming later this month.
