Battlefield 2042 Leaker Says It's Releasing On Time, No More Delays

In response to rumors that Battlefield 2042 will be delayed again, reputable industry insider Tom Henderson claims the game will be released on schedule.

Despite rumors to the contrary, reputable Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson insists that Battlefield 2042 will be released in mid-November 2021. The rumors in question started circulating this past weekend thanks to a Reddit post in the r/GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit. If Battlefield 2042’s beta “doesn’t go smoothly,” publisher Electronic Arts may consider delaying the shooter until March 2022, according to the post.

Battlefield 2042 was supposed to be released for consoles and PC in late October, according to EA and developer DICE. The companies had no choice but to push the project’s previously scheduled launch date due to the challenges of developing games during the global pandemic. Naturally, this resulted in the Early Access and Open Beta periods for Battlefield 2042 being postponed. On October 6 and 7, those who pre-ordered the FPS title will be able to participate in an Early Access version of the beta. The Open Beta for Battlefield 2042 will begin on October 8 and will end on October 9, according to DICE.

According to leaker Tom Henderson, the claim that Battlefield 2042 could be pushed back to March 2022 is false. Henderson confirmed this in a brief Twitter thread on Sunday, October 3, telling followers that his sources believe the shooter will release on November 19. “The team is confident it’s ready,” the leaker continued, insisting that the release date will not be pushed back regardless of beta results. While Battlefield 2042 “could get delayed,” like any other title with a set release date, he went on to say that EA and DICE have not yet discussed such a course of action internally.

Given Henderson’s track record, which includes correctly leaking Battlefield Portal details and revised beta plans, it’s safe to assume Battlefield 2042 will release on schedule this holiday season. When the beta sessions start rolling out this week, fans will undoubtedly get a closer look at the project’s development progress.

Battlefield 2042 is one of the many highly anticipated holiday releases. It is billed as the most ambitious entry in the series to date. Its scope appears to be broader than its predecessors, and DICE chose to forego developing a story campaign in favor of focusing solely on creating a top-tier multiplayer experience.

On November 19, Battlefield 2042 will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
