New Battlefield 2042 early access date revealed. Dev says BFV in a “different phase” when he was delayed


In case you didn’t know, DICE announced yesterday that Battlefield 2042 will be delayed and will release on November 19 instead of its original October 22 date. With the announcement, it stands to reason that the game’s early access availability has changed as well. DICE has confirmed that the new Battlefield 2042 Early Access for EA Play and Xbox Game Pass is now scheduled for November 12, 2021!

This news was announced today by Adam Freeman, Lead Community Manager at DICE.

We’ve compiled the tweet from the Twitter feed in one place for easier reading /

Thank you to everyone who sent their messages of support in the last 12 hours or so – this is deeply appreciated by all of us on the team. #BATTLEFIELD I will help answer questions as we approach November 19. To help clarify Early Access below = November 12

We are in the process of updating our two websites and with our partners on their respective storefronts. It takes a little while to do, so please be indulgent with us as you do this, and share the date with the people you see asking the question.

New dates for the Open Beta will be shared later this month. We probably won’t be sharing those dates today or tomorrow – and I’ll give you more information next week.

Battlefield 2042’s new early access release date of November 12 is also a month different from the original which was October 15.

Now for those worried that Battlefield 2042’s delay means it will be like Battlefield V (BF5), DICE Gameplay Engineer Niels Stoelinga announced that the studio was in a different phase when BFV was delayed, and that a lot can be done in four weeks when it comes to the bug fixing phase.

A lot can be done in 4 weeks when you are in the bug fixing phase of a project. Feature work introduces bugs, requires testing / balancing, and possibly more iterations. Bugs can be fixed fairly quickly because they usually don’t add more work. It’s gonna be good, we’re so close!

It’s a fair comparison, but we were in a different phase during BFV when it was delayed. It’s okay if you don’t believe me, just know that I am very optimistic and have worked on quite a few releases before.

While it’s easy to blame DICE for delaying the game and all, people have to remember we’re in the middle of a pandemic, which complicates a lot – and yes, it does involve development. games. From what we’ve seen so far, Battlefield 2042 is in a better position than BFV given that it doesn’t appear to feature attrition and other gameplay-related mechanics that haven’t exactly been adopted. by Battlefield fans (including this guy).
