Battlefield V Overture Update Patch Set for Tomorrow Has Been Delayed Indefinitely

The team has discovered an issue with the #Battlefield Chapter 1: Overture update. Rather than create issues in the game, we’re holding the update for the time being.

Jesus. This game is not in a good state.

solideagle2021d ago (Edited 2021d ago )

how the mighty have fallen, they used to be toe to toe with Call of Duty in terms of sales and quality...wonder if its DICE's or EA's fault?

RacerX2020d ago

Gotta be EA, everything they touch lately is covered with controversy.

@solid

They were never toe to toe with call of duty sales wise lol.

slate912020d ago

Ouch, a bit harsh considering its coming out 1 day late 😊

RedeemTK2020d ago

@slate91 "Unfortunately, no specific date or schedule has been given when the update will be rolled out other than an announcement will be made tomorrow" pls read. thanks

ChrisW2020d ago

I'm strongly believing that it's all EA's fault.

I haven't played any CoD or Battlefield games since Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam.

@ChrisW

Its very easy to say it's EA until we see that even DICE developers have been outspoken in their defence of the game. Theres a point where we have to accept that the dev team is also responsible for generating the controversy.

@redeem - protip: if you follow gaming news, dont put all your eggs in one basket, ie N4G. Start following different outlets. (Twitter is a good place to start! ;p )

After the latest controversy surrounding the game, this just further dragging the game down.

The DICE ship sinks deeper into the depths of the abyss.

OnlyThoseOnTheFence2021d ago

I hear their next game is centered around submarine warfare.

RizBiz2020d ago

Joking aside, that would be a really fun game. Definitely a theme which hasn't been explored much at all.

Forn2021d ago

I miss the PS2 era EA so freaking much.

NarooN2020d ago

There were an insane amount of good games EA developed and published back then. Now? It's just abysmal and depressing. 6th console gen was epic.

Might just be me but every battlefield game since Bad Company 2 has gotten worse and worse in one way or another whether it be bad story or horrible online they have been dropping the ball more and more each release. It all goes back to EA in one way or another how many good devs have left or been forced out by there shitty practices and policies.

Actually BF1 is quite good. I got that last month from XB Live Good free game.

annoyedgamer2021d ago

Most of this is cut content. They took it out of the main game to return it to the player for "free".

AnubisG2021d ago

I agree that it is cut content but I think it is cut not because they wanted to give this as "free" content. This was cut because the game is simply unfinished and this is the stuff that was not ready for launch. I think that is the reason. I got the game ( I'm sorry guys, I'm ashamed😆) becausem I'm a BF fan and take it from me, it's not finished. It's in a pre-beta state. Could not give this more than a 5/10 in it's current state.

InTheZoneAC2021d ago (Edited 2021d ago )

I'm a huge bf fan and I'm capable of not supporting the new dice or battlefield. I'm not a sheep and I will return if they ever give us a proper bf without the extra b.s. attached. And since It is backed by EA I can only buy their products used if I am somewhat interested.

badz1492020d ago

it's kinda terrible when so many of the options available on launch day are "coming soon". if that is not bad enough, now THIS! good job EA!

ALICE6662020d ago (Edited 2020d ago )

I don't understand people who know its not finished yet pay $$$$ for it anyways. This encourages them to keep releasing half ass games on the premises of 'we'll add the rest later'. Watching AJ's review just show how much was cut that should've been in day 1...the rest of the campaigns, the customization on some things, hell even something basic like the shooting range is delayed lol

jordan22290ps2021d ago

Wouldn't it be ready to go if it was just cut from the main game to begin with?

badz1492020d ago (Edited 2020d ago )

that just means that the main game itself was not ready for release but they release it anyway and promised these contents that didn't make it as 'free' DLC

sarlucic2020d ago

This is not true, i work as a game developer and i have multiple friends that works at DICE which i went to school with. They are still working on the game, this patch was delayed because of a bug that obviously would have been fixed if it was already developed, think.

Chaosdreams2021d ago

It's apparent EA is crippling another studio. DICE, like every other studio in EA's shadow, dies.

elazz2021d ago (Edited 2021d ago )

It really surprises me how literally every EA studio goes throgh the same cycle until nothing is left anymore. Battlefield release cycle used to be 3 years and now dice has to release every year a game. All for the short term money until they can buy another studio to do the same. Im scared for Respawn next.

Chaosdreams2021d ago (Edited 2021d ago )

As an added note:

Pretty graphics are used as the hook. The "as a service" model helps them alleviate how anemic the releases have become while also getting away with releasing unfinished products. And even when the sales plummet, EA licks their lips as they reel in a few whales.

No whales? Studio is devoured instead.

A lot of gamers have caught on and are sick of it. Favourite IP's that are a no brainer for success end up failing do to sheer stupidity in the development process (greed / time crunch / burnout).

People are waking up and wanting proper content for their hard earned cash. EA still doesn't care. EA will only care when they are staring bankruptcy one day - and even then they'd have the gull to say, "Don't buy our product then."

@ elazz
Um no not sure what you mean. DICE has stated i think shortly before BF1 that they will not be release a BF every year. BF1 was 2016 there was no new BF last year only BF1 and BF4 updates.
