As reported by Eurogamer on Tuesday, July 22, Dead Space developer Visceral Games has announced that the next addition to the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield Hardline , will be delayed until “ early 2015. ”
The reasoning behind Battlefield Hardline’s delay is because of Visceral Games’ determination to improve the title, due to having received a lot of player feedback from the game’s Beta last month.
” We’ve been pouring over the data and feedback, and have already been putting a lot of it right into the game and sharing it directly with you, ” explained DICE vice president Karl Magnus Troedsson in a blog post on the matter.
“ This feedback also spurred us to start thinking about other possibilities and ways we could push Hardline innovation further and make the game even better. The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing,” Troedsson continued . “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. ”
Battlefield Hardline was initially slated to release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on Tuesday, October 21 .
