Feel free to check your calendars and update the Battlefield 5 release date. By update, we mean, erase the old date (October 19); and mark the new BF5 release day, which is November 20, 2018.
According to Oskar Gabrielson:
“We believe we have one of the best Battlefield games ever on our hands. A game that will deliver on an emotional journey through the return of unseen single player War Stories, a deep multiplayer experience, Battle Royale, along with our new live service, Tides of War – a journey across multiple theaters of WW2 and designed to keep our community together.
With the Open Beta just around the corner, we are excited about the millions of you who will join us and experience the game. And we fully expect to see even more feedback coming our way.
And that’s why we’re moving our launch date. We’re going to take the time to continue to make some final adjustments to core gameplay and to ensure we really deliver on the potential of Tides of War.
We know moving the launch date means that we all have to wait a little longer. But we’re going to take our time to make sure we get it right.”
While this news may sadden you, here are two facts that might cheer you up. First, the Battlefield 5 beta dates remain the same.
The first title releases on October 12; while Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 will be available starting October 26, 2018.
