Two Major Game Delays at EA

Today Electronic Arts announced that it will be delaying two of it's most anticipated titles of 2014.

 Both Battlefield Hardline and Dragon Age: Inquisition will be delayed. Each were highly anticipated games and slated to be released this October.

Battlefield Hardline was originally scheduled to be released on October 21st and has now been delayed to “early 2015.” Announcing it on the Battlefield Blog, DICE VP and Group GM Karl Troedsson cited multiplayer innovation, single player story depth and stability all as reasons for the delay. These are all good things to reason with given that Battlefield 4 still has issues with its gameplay.


Dragon Age: Inquisition was originally slated to be released on October 7th, along side Aliens: Isolation and Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Mordor. Mark Darrah, executive producer of the game, took to the Dragon Age blog to let the fans know about this delay. While they will only be pushing to November 18th, Mark cited polishing the game, including fixing bugs big and small, as for reasons for the delay.

It is possible that EA realized that October was already jam-packed with games and there seems to be pretty stout competition. Along with Aliens: Isolation and Shadows of Mordor, we can expect the highly anticipated Evolve, the next installment of the Assassin’s Creed series, the next Pokemon (3DS)  and Super Smash Bros. (3DS, not Wii U), Drive Club, The Evil Within, Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One), as well as many other top-selling franchises.

  1. Good for them. I’d rather play a complete bugless game than one with bugs. 🙂
