Battlefield 2042: Beta postponement cause for concern, more information probably next week

Battlefield 2042

The postponement of the Battlefield 2042 release also seems to have an impact on the planned beta. As Adam Freeman, Community Manager at DICE, reports on Twitter, the "new dates" will be submitted later in the month. "We will most likely not give individual dates today or tomorrow," said Freeman, adding that we will be able to provide the players with further details in the coming week. So far, the beta start was planned for September, the developers have not yet given any specific dates. At the end of the day, there were more indications that the test phase would start on September 22nd.

With the postponement of the main game from October 22nd to November 19th, the beta also seems to be delayed. Insider and BF leaker Tom Henderson recently reported that the BF beta should start in Early Access on October 6th. On October 8th, all interested players will again have access to the battlefields on PC and consoles. It remains to be seen whether the information is confirmed. It is likely that DICE will postpone the beta from September to October. "Because there has not yet been any announcement of the specific date, except for September, 'new dates' could mean a postponement to October," suspects Henderson.

Rumor: Battlefield 2042 could be postponed

Some sources rumor that a postponement of Battlefield 2042 is imminent. How much longer we should wait seems unclear. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1379806,1379719,1379694,1379683'; At the same time, a postponement of the Battlefield 2042 beta would also be a cause for concern: "The point of a beta is that players can give feedback and report bugs. If they have to postpone that themselves, that's thoughtful," adds the BF Community -Veteran. In its statement on the postponement of the release, DICE announced that the global pandemic brought unpredictable challenges. Because the current conditions do not allow safe working in the office, many developers would have to continue to work in the home office. Therefore, they wanted to give themselves additional time so that the developers could achieve their goals for BF 2042.

Battlefield 2042 Developer Assures Fans Recent Delay Isn't Cause for Concern

Electronic Arts and DICE announced earlier this week that it would need to delay Battlefield 2042 from its planned October release date to a new date in November instead. The delay was one that, for some fans, raised a red flag about the current state of Battlefield 2042 and its overall quality when launching later this fall. According to one developer working on the project, though, this change in release date isn't something that should be a cause for concern. 

In a recent message shared on social media, EA's Jim Hejl commented on the delay that Battlefield 2042 received just a few days back. In Short, Hejl thanked fans for their continued support of the title even in spite of the new launch date. 'Hey, I really appreciate all the support from the community regarding the new 2042 dates. It feels good that you trust us,' Hejl said. He went on to say that he believes that the trust that fans have given EA and DICE should be well-placed, because he believes that the overall game is a very good one. 'And you should. It's a solid game. This isn't my first rodeo. It's not a project in trouble. It just needs a little longer on the spin cycle. Have faith,' he expressed. 

All in all, this message from Hejl is one that should encourage fans who may have been concerned about Battlefield 2042 in recent days. While someone that is working on the game might not be the most objective source of information when it comes to 2042's overall quality, the fact that this delay is one that isn't even a full month likely means that the title isn't in trouble whatsoever. Instead, with the ongoing pandemic still proving to be a problem for many video game publishers around the globe, there's a good chance that this delay could have purely been for logistical reasons rather than involving anything with the actual game. 

If you didn't happen to hear about the delay of Battlefield 2042 earlier in the week, the game is now poised to release on November 19. When it does arrive, it will be releasing across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC platforms. 

How do you feel about this new message that has come about from Hejl? And do you think that Battlefield 2042 will be a great game when it does end up launching? Let me know your thoughts either down in the comments or over on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
