Battlefield: Hardline & Dragon Age: Inquisition delayed

In the latest episode of The Next Level, we talk about the crazily packed October game release schedule but October just got a little lighter with the announcement that both Battlefield Hardline and Dragon Age: Inquisition have been delayed.

Visceral and EA delayed the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Battlefield Hardline until early 2015  in order to facilitate player feedback they received during the game’s Beta. DICE VP and group GM Karl Magnus Troedsson said

“The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing. However, there was only one problem. We would need more time. Time that we didn’t have if we decided to move forward with launching in just a couple of months.”

 

In a separate announcement, Bioware revealed that Dragon Age: Inquisition  which was originally set to come out on 7 October  has also been pushed back a month and will be released on 18 Nov in North America and 21 Nov in Europe.

Executive producer Mark Darrah said in an official update: “We appreciate the enormous support we’ve received from all of you to get to this point, and while this extra few weeks may not seem like a lot, I know the game you’ll play will be all the better for it,” 

 

The Battlefield Hardline delayed seems understandable to me as there has been a lot of negative feedback following the beta, but a little bit of my thinks Bioware may have just wanted to get out of the crowded October month with Dragon Age.
