Publisher Electronic Arts have moved the release date of Battlefield 2042 from October 22 to November. EA and DICE announced that the game will now be moved to November 19th, 2021, a one-month delay from the originally scheduled release date of October 22. The reason for the delay is said to be the implication of Covid-19. After the delay of the games to November, the open beta of the games is postponed to October.
According to the team, complications from the reality of today’s world kept it from the original launch date. The free-to-play multiplayer mode “Halo Infinite” and “Xbox Game Pass” will not hurt sales of “Battlefield 2042,” but will take the biggest EAs title for 2021 from the usual sweet spot. Although the game will be more of a bestseller than the fact that it will be released with Call of Duty alone, it gives DICE the time to make the necessary changes to avoid a PR nightmare.
According to the developers, Given the scale of this game, the development team hopes that they can advance their development team, studio, and team with the launch. The studio said in a statement that given the size and scope of this next generation of Battlefield, we hope that our development teams, team, and studios will be able to launch Battlefield 2042″.

Delays this season have already been underpinned by Techlanda’s decision to postpone Dying Light until February 2, 2022, and further delays for other titles are expected in the coming days.
It’s not the only game being postponed this week, but the reason is the most common. Delays mean the game will be more polished at launch, so it is in the developers “best interests to extend the release date. Battlefield games have been delayed before the recent one being Battlefield 5 which was also delayed by a month.

There have been numerous delays to games large and small this year, with Dying Light 2 announcing its revised release date earlier this week. Although this is not surprising given the delays in many other titles, the development team was surprised that Battlefield 2042s came a month late.
