One of the highly anticipated first-person shooters of this year, Battlefield 2042, has been delayed. Don’t worry because it’s still coming out this year. The semi-futuristic military shooter will now be launched on November 19. The delay was announced on Twitter.

The developer hoped that the development team would be back in the offices as the game gets closer to launch. However, the raging pandemic made sure that won’t happen. The developer also assured fans that the previously announced Open Beta is still coming.

Tough Competition 

The last quarter of this year is going to be a feeding frenzy. Three major AAA FPS games are releasing in Q4. Battlefield 2042 will face tough competition with Activision’s World War 2 game, Call of Duty Vanguard, which will launch on November 5. The second title is Microsoft’s system seller IP, Halo Infinite, which launches on December 8. The fact that Infinite’s multiplayer mode will be free for everyone doesn’t exactly help Battlefield either.

Another AAA title, Dying Light 2: Stay Human, was also supposed to release in Q4. However, it got delayed to February 2022.

About the game 

Battlefield 2042 has an amazing premise, but it doesn’t feature a single-player campaign. If you were hoping for a proper campaign with fan-favorite characters, well tough luck, that ain’t happening. The developer decided to ditch the campaign to focus on the multiplayer experience.

As mentioned above, the game will now launch on November 19 on all major platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. You can already pre-order the game on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and Origin. You can also play the game for free if you have an active EA Play Pro subscription.
