Electronic Arts announced today that Battlefield: Hardline and Dragon Age: Inquisition will be delayed. According to the big publisher, the new Battlefield game is now planned for an early 2015 release while Bioware’s new RPG is now scheduled for a November release.
As EA noted, Visceral Games will be able to further enhance and polish this new Battlefield game by slightly delaying it. During this new timeframe, Visceral Games is going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community. Also, Visceral wants to improve the game’s stability. Obviously, EA doesn’t want another BF4 on its hands.
In addition, Visceral will be spending more time polishing the Single-Player core features of the game, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper “crime revenge” story experience.
Regarding Dragon Age: Inquisition, the new release date is November 18th for North America and November 21st for Europe.
As Mark Darrah, Executive Producer of Dragon Age: Inquisition, said:
“This last bit of time is about polishing the experience we want you to see. Ensuring that our open spaces are as engaging as possible. Strengthening the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices. And ensuring the experience you get is the best it can be in the platform you choose to play on.”
