Delaying Battlefield: Hardline Was “The Right Call,” Says Visceral Games

By   /   Jan 9, 2015

Battlefield: Hardline was delayed five months over its original schedule, but the developer believes that it was “the right call” to make.

In an open letter to the community, Executive Producer for Battlefield: Hardline Steve Papoutsis said that a major reason for the game’s delay was the community itself. The earlier beta events left below average impressions for the new installment and many marked it as feeling just like an expansion to Battlefield 4.

Keeping in light of the disastrous launch which Battlefield 4 had, publisher EA decided to delay Battlefield: Hardline and take into account the feedback and suggestions from players.

In the open letter Papoutsis mentioned that the extra time has proven to be very beneficial and Battlefield: Hardline is now a majorly improved game.

“The improvements the team has added to the game with the extra time are making Battlefield Hardline the complete first-person shooter experience we set out to deliver,” he said.

He also promised another beta event that will target all platforms. This will come just before launch, which puts it probably around late February.

Battlefield: Hardline is due for release on March 17 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
