EA officially confirmed a delay for Battlefield 2042 yesterday, but initial fears about how long the game would be pushed back lead to shares with in the publisher dropping 7% before recovering again.
Reports started circulating about the delay yesterday morning, suggesting Battlefield 2042 could be pushed back to as far as early 2022. As a result, shares dropped on Wednesday to as much as 7% to an intraday low of $135.84, Market Watch has reported.
Once the game was confirmed to have been delayed only by one month, shares recovered by 3% lost immediately, although they haven’t quite reached the same level as they were prior to the delay woes.
Battlefield 2042 was originally slated to appear on October 22, 2021, but will now be deployed on November 19. The game will be available for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
