Dragon Age: Inquisition, Battlefield Hardline Delayed
EA’s two major titles, previously dated for fall release, have been delayed. Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition was originally announced as an Oct. 7 release, but has been pushed back to Nov. 18 in North America, and Nov. 21 in Europe.
“We appreciate the enormous support we’ve received from all of you to get to this point, and while this extra few weeks may not seem like a lot, I know the game you’ll play will be all the better for it,” executive producer Mark Darrah said in a press release.
The other title in question is DICE’s and Visceral’s Battlefield Hardline, which will no longer release in 2014. The cops-and-robbers shooter now has an early 2015 release window, as opposed to its original fall 2014 date. The reason behind the delay was to give Visceral more time to facilitate player feedback the studio received during the game’s beta.
“The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing,” EA’s website reads. “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.”
