Electronic Arts has announced that Battlefield Hardline has been delayed, missing its original October 24 release date.
Karl Magnus Troedsson explained on the Battlefield blog the reasons of this delay. According to him, "Back at E3, we launched a beta for Hardline, 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. "
Regarding the players' feedback, Troedsson has stated "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. 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."
Troedsson also believes this delay will allow "Battlefield Hardline to be the best game it can be." The game will now launch in early 2015.
