"Given the scale and scope of the game, we had hoped our teams would be back in our studios together as we move towards launch," said Oskar Gabrielson, DICE's CEO.

On the other hand, he also said that the current ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is one of the major factors why the delay is happening. The game publisher's CEO added that the DICE development team is doing its best, even though some staff is working on the new game at their own houses.

Aside from this, he reassured the fans that "Battlefield 2042" would arrive before 2021 ends.

Electronic Arts' subsidiary company confirmed the new Nov. 19 launch date via its official "Battlefield" Twitter account. As of the moment, the latest tweet of the giant game publisher already generated more than 26,000 likes, 3,100 quote tweets, and 4,800 retweets.

In the comment section, some players already shared their disappointment. One of them even said that he thinks DICE and EA are just using the pandemic as an excuse for the delay.

He added that a game could be delayed, but using the pandemic as an excuse for more than three weeks adjustment is already the company's fault. Although this is the case, some fans are still happy since they believe that DICE would use the one-month delay to enhance the new title further.

In other news, some games are getting deleted, including the popular "LittleBigPlanet," which Sony permanently shut down. On the other hand, the new "Marvel's Wolverine" is also set to arrive on the PS5 platform.
