Battlefield 2042: New date for the beta - Insider expects to be activated later

Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 appears later: The release is now planned for November 19th. DICE announced in an open letter that it would have to postpone the first-person shooter by just under a month. With the delay, the start of the beta also seems to be postponing. As the usually well-informed insider Tom Henderson reports, the activation is now planned for October 6th. Then apparently those who pre-order the full version get access to the battlefields. A few days later, on October 8th, Battlefield 2042 will finally switch to Open Beta. This means that all interested players can try out the new first-person shooter - on PC and consoles.

Henderson assumes that the dates for the Open Beta of Battlefield 2042 (buy now € 57.99 / € 53.99) to be sent to the press and content creators in the coming days. His data therefore come from an internal system that Henderson cannot share with the public. Previously, the insider, known for his leaks, had named September 22 as the start date for the Battlefield 2042 Beta.

Electronic Arts Stock Jumps, Says 'Battlefield 2042' Delay Won't Dent Forecasts

Electronic Arts Stock Jumps, Says © TheStreet Electronic Arts Stock Jumps, Says 'Battlefield 2042' Delay Won't Dent Forecasts

Electronic Arts shares jumped higher Thursday after it said delays in the launch of its highly-anticipated 'Battlefield 2042' wouldn't hit the video game maker's bottom line.

The popular 'Battlefield 2042' game will be released worldwide on November 19, a month later than expected, owing to what the group called 'unforseen challenges' linked to the global pandemic, including chip shortages and supply chain disruptions.

Electronic Arts eased investor concerns over the delay, however, when it reiterated its forecast for $7.4 billion in net bookings and $6.85 billion in sales for its current fiscal year, as analysts noted the last time a 'Battlefield' release was delayed, in 2019, it resulted in a 5% cut to that year's financial guidance.

'Building the next generation of Battlefield during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our development teams,' said Sweden-based DICE Studio general manager Oskar Gabrielson. 'Given the scale and scope of the game, we had hoped our teams would be back in our studios together as we move towards launch. With the ongoing conditions not allowing that to happen safely, and with all the hard work the teams are doing from home, we feel it is important to take the extra time to deliver on the vision of Battlefield 2042 for our players.'

'Your enthusiasm for the game has been very inspiring,' he added. 'We believe in the game we're making, and we thank you for your patience as we put some finishing touches into the experience.'

Electronic Arts shares were marked 1.6% higher in early trading Thursday to change hands at $139.60 each, a move that would trim the stock's year-to-date decline to around 3%.

'The delay disrupts BF2042's otherwise near 'perfect' flow since its reveal early June and in our view dulls its edge over ATVI's CoD Vanguard in the launch window,' said Oppenheimer analyst Martin Yang, who carries an outperform rating with a $165 price target on the stock. 'While we still believe BF2042 can gain players from CoD and other mainstream shooter games based on novel and differentiated content/gameplay, the delay gives us more concern over BF2042's initial momentum.'
