Battlefield 4: Naval Strike Expansion Delayed on PC
That Titan mode comeback in Battlefield 4 will have to wait on PC.
Battlefield 4: Naval Strike launches today on consoles for premium members, bringing four new maps and, most notably, a remake of the classic Battlefield 2142 Titan mode, Carrier Assault. The PC version, however, has been bumped back.
With a post on the official Battlefield Blog in the wee hours of the morning, DICE announced that it has “detected an issue” and has delayed PC launch indefinitely.
“We are delaying the launch of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC,” DICE stated. “We’ve detected an issue and it needs to be solved. Quality is our number one priority and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible. Once we have a confirmed date for PC, we’ll be sure to update those players on our official channels. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing everyone on the Battlefield.”
Given the uproar DICE and EA created for its bug-filled Battlefield 4 launch, this new delay just hours before Naval Strike’s PC launch (for those who pay for the early release privilege, no less) certainly doesn’t look good. However, it’s undoubtedly the right decision. Another bungled launch would have been a nightmare for players and DICE/EA alike.
