Battlefield 4: Naval Strike Delayed On Xbox One As Well
Yesterday we posted some news on the recent Battlefield 4 expansion, Naval Strike, being delayed on PC. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen the delay of the content on the Xbox One. Developer DICE is hoping to release both the PC and Xbox One versions by early April. It will all depend on how many bugs they discover since the release of the expansion on other systems yesterday.
DICE released a new statement, explaining why they decided to push the Naval Strike expansion back on Xbox One, which was to “address issues in the animation system that hinder players from engaging targets in set circumstances using popular weapon configurations.”
UPDATE: We wanted to provide more detail about the delay of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike. We have delayed the PC version of Naval Strike because we are concerned that the combination of the pack and planned PC updates would increase performance issues on mid-range to high-end PCs. We are working hard to resolve that issue now. Additionally, 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.
We know that many Battlefield 4 Premium owners wanted to play Naval Strike today. However, we didn’t want to release the new content until we believed it was quality content.
We are trying to resolve these problems as quickly as possible and hope to release the update in early April for Xbox One and PC. We also want to remind Xbox One and PC owners of Battlefield 4 Premium that they will have two weeks early access for Naval Strike once it’s released. Thanks for your continued patience and passion for our games.
Naval Strike is currently available only on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360 for Battlefield 4 Premium subscribers. Those who do not subscribe to Premium may not see the Naval Strike content until later than anticipated, which is generally two weeks after Premium receives it.
We’ll keep an eye on Naval Strike and all the happenings at DICE.
