Battlefield 5 has been delayed, now releasing on November 20th

Electronic Arts and DICE have just announced that Battlefield 5 has been delayed. The game was originally meant to hit stores on October 19th, however the publisher has decided to delay the game by almost a month, and currently targets a November 20th release.

According to the developers, this extra time will give them the opportunity to make some final adjustments to core gameplay, and to ensure they deliver on the potential of Tides of War.

Of course this sounds more like a PR statement than the real reason behind this delay. Our guess is that EA decided to delay the game in order to avoid being “sandwiched” between Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will release on October 12th whereas Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out on current-gen consoles on October 26th. It’s also been reported that the game’s pre-orders are below those of Black Ops 4, so it makes perfect sense to delay the game so it can avoid this competition.

The open beta phase of Battlefield 5 has not been delayed and will go live on September 6th!
