Uh oh, the next huge videogame delay could be the biggest one yet – Battlefield 2042!
Battlefield 2042 is one of the most highly-anticipated games in the world right now. However, despite the release date being less than 6 weeks away now, we have heard very little about the game so far.
Following rumors that the Battlefield 2042 Beta was delayed, players began to get concerned about the state of the game. Now it looks like that worry was for good reason.
A couple of gaming insiders are now claiming that EA could have delayed Battlefield 2042!
But first, check out the leaked Battlefield 2042 Beta pre-load date.
Is Battlefield 2042 Delayed?
Recently, fans of the series were excited to see the latest Battlefield 2042 gameplay featuring new Specialists. However, this excitement could be short-lived.
First, reliable gaming source @Spheshal_Nick from the XboxEra podcast replied to a tweet claiming that EA has delayed Battlefield 2042 until 2022. In his reply, he claimed he was “hearing the same”.
However, Nick later clarified that he heard about the delay and not the possible new release date, saying: “Not necessarily 2022”.
This is not a major surprise as the Battlefield 2042 Technical Playtest was still quite rough.
Additionally, another reliable source for gaming leaks, Jeff Grubb, claimed that “more delays” are coming this week. Players immediately assumed this to be about Battlefield 2042 and this could be correct.
A screenshot of a message supposedly sent by Jeff Grubb on Discord has surfaced, claiming that EA has delayed Battlefield 2042. While Grubb himself has not commented on the screenshot, another reliable insider @Okami13_ believes it is “100%” real.
Do you think the EA has pushed back the Battlefield 2042 release date? None of this information has been confirmed by EA yet, so take all of this with a grain of salt. However, a delay becomes more likely with every passing day without the Beta.
Update – September 15: EA DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 2042 has been delayed and will now release worldwide on November 19, 2021.
