Battlefield Hardline is now delayed into 2015, confirmed DICE.
The news came on the Battlefield blog, with the developers saying that the delay will ““ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience.”
Karl Magnus Troedsson from DICE talked about the news and said :
“Back at E3, we launched a beta for Hardline — we wanted to not only show you the game, but to let you play it for yourselves,” he wrote. “Millions of you jumped in and had a great time. As a result, the Visceral Games team learned a lot from players about what they wanted in the game.
“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. 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.
“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. We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.”
The delay will allow the developers to add new feature ideas directly from the community into the multiplayer , as will as insuring that the Single Player story and campaign will “delivers on player expectations.” , and of course , more time will allow the team to maximize the Stability of the game unlike Battlefield 4’s buggy release .
“We are doing all of this for one reason: we want Battlefield Hardline to be the best game it can be, and so that we can create the best environment for a smooth launch for our players,” said Troedsson.
“We will give you updates on our progress and we’ll regularly share updates along the way.”
Battlefield: Hardline will now release in 2015 after it was planned to release in October , and is coming to PC,PS3/4 and Xbox 360/One.
