DICE and EA just can’t seem to launch anything Battlefield 4 related without problems. Yesterday, DICE delayed the PC launch of the Naval Strike DLC due to a technical issue.
“We’ve detected an issue and it needs to be solved,” DICE wrote on the Battlefield site.
“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.”
Fast forward to today and the Xbox One version gets delayed. What’s wrong with the Xbox One version?
“We have decided to delay the Xbox One version of Naval Strike because we want to address issues in the animation system that hinder players from engaging targets in set circumstances using popular weapon configurations,” DICE said.
Battlefield 4 has been plagued with issues since the onset. It’s a shame too. Underneath the bugs and glitches is one of the best shooters released in years.
The Playstation 4 version appears to be fine. At least, it released yesterday. I’ll be playing it over the next few days and give you my thoughts later this week.
DICE says they are working on the problems. No specific date has been given for the Xbox One and PC, but DICE is targeting early April. Premium members of both platforms will continue to have two weeks of early access once Naval Strike releases.
