Battlefield 2042 rumored to have a month long delay

Popular Industry insider Tom Henderson recently shared some dismal news for fans of the iconic franchise. For the past few weeks, a lot of rumors had circulated about a possible delay for Battlefield 2042. The game set to release on October 22 has been in turmoil with no major news about it for weeks now.

Henderson mentioned that the game will have delays soon. But, it won’t be delayed for months, which has been the more popular rumor on the Internet right now. He stated that the delay will only be a few weeks long. So most probably, the game might be shifted to a late November release date. This will put Battlefield 2042 between the release windows of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Halo: Infinite.
