Hardline delayed to 2015

As you may have heard, EA has decided to delay the release of Battlefield Hardline to 2015. Here’s the communication from Electronic Arts

Today we are announcing that Battlefield Hardline will launch in early 2015. Obviously, this is big news, so I’d like to address why we’re making this change.

Back at E3, we launched a beta for Hardline — we wanted to not only show you the game, but to let you play it for yourselves. 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. We’ve been pouring over the data and feedback, and have already been putting a lot of it right into the game and sharing it directly with you.

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. The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing. 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.

We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.

Here are a few of the things the new timing will allow us to accomplish:

  1. Multiplayer Innovation: Coming out of our E3 beta, internal focus tests, and work with our community, we have received a lot of great Multiplayer thinking. We’re going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community that will evolve the cops and criminals fantasy into a truly unique Battlefield Multiplayer experience.
  2. Single Player Story Depth: In order to ensure our Single Player experience delivers on player expectations, we’re spending more time polishing our core features, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper “crime revenge” story experience.
  3. Stability: This has been a focus for our team since day one and we’re going to be using the extra time to continue to optimize the game for a stable launch. We have learned a lot from Battlefield 4 , are continuing to learn from our Community Test Environment and will learn more from another Hardline beta. More time allows us to surface issues that the team can attempt to fix prior to launch.

We are doing all of this for one reason. Because we want Battlefield Hardline to be the best game it can be, and so that we can create the best environment for a smooth launch for our players. We will give you updates on our progress and we’ll regularly share updates along the way via Battlefield.com/Hardline as well as the Battlefield social channels.

In addition to the ongoing development of Hardline, it’s important to note that the DICE teams continue to drive Battlefield 4. We continue to explore new opportunities for improvements and we are still releasing new content, including “Dragon’s Teeth,” the fourth expansion pack that launches worldwide on July 29, and “Final Stand” coming later this year. We remain committed to giving you the best Battlefield 4 experience possible.

Beta Coming this Fall for PS3, PS4, XBOX One, XBOX 360 and PC

The Battlefield Hardline beta is now officially closed, however Developer Visceral and announced on the Battlefield’s Official Blog that another  beta that will feature more contents will launch this fall on all the platforms.

“The Battlefield Hardline beta was only a small portion of what’s in the complete version,” Papoutsis mentioned. “We’ve loads of new modes within the game that basically play off the cop and criminal theme, in addition to the return of fan-favorites.”

Papoutsis additionally stated that we should expect to hear news concerning the multiplayer mode within the next months, in addition to the single player campaign. Visceral is famous for its work on the Dead Space series, and Papoutsis stated that Battlefield Hardline’s single player campaign will equally engross gamers within the game’s story and world. “We’re doing a little cool new things in how we tell the campaign, much like what you see when watching episodes of your favourite TV shows,” Papoutsis stated. “It’s one thing totally different and we’re fired up about it.”

Responding to critics who say that this 12 months’s Battlefield Hardline appears to be like too iterative, lead multiplayer designer Thad Sesser lately defined the enhancements, tweaks, and additions the studio has made to the Battlefield four system, which makes Battlefield Hardline more than simply an expansion, but of course, it’s better to wait to see the final product.

Battlefield Hardline launches on October 21 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360,Xbox One, and PC.
