Battlefield Hardline Delayed Until 2015

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 poring 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 BF4 experience possible.

It's not that. They're trying to regain the BF fanbase's trust after the state BF4 released in.
#3
The game will still end up having several glitches and bugs after release
#4
I'm glad there are far too many games running up to christmas and at least they have time to 'improve'
banned#5
I didn't think much of the beta, bf4 just getting good and the new map pack is amazing...

I won't buy hardline I think I'll wait for bf5 when ever that will be....

Hopefully the delay will mean the game won't be rushed out like BF4 and be a broken game on release so I don't mind waiting
#7

If you believe that then all hope in humanity is lost

signed truthfully...one **** off premium member!

It's going to run like a turd just like BF4, BF3 and every other battlefield, Call of duty , Fifa etc at release

Why because they insist on using their own **** poorly implemented servers

If it stops it ending up like BF4 i welcome the delay

It looks like Payday The Heist which is about the best thing I can say about it. Hardline is a blatant rip off of other games. Dice really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now.

Erm...it's Visceral Games who are developing it and if you had been in the beta, you'd have seen it's not like Payday.

So the robbing armoured trucks etc is not like Payday 2 ?

There are parts that are like it, but on the whole it honestly isn't that similar. It's the slow/heavy controls of the BF series that lets it down most in my opinion.

I just think the whole concept is flawed. At least there is a semblance of reality in the BF series. This is just silly.

Where are the bystanders whilst the Police tear up the city in helicopters spraying bullets everywhere?

They must need time to add MTs
