It looks like EA is writing this one off as a timing issue by the grand scheme of things, sadly it is still a delay! Battlefield may be an excuse to push back the previous 2018 release window, but I think they actually want to get this one right. With all the backlash EA has been getting as well as massive multiplayer shooters like Destiny that have been failing, creating a lasting title is something they need to put everything into! As long as Bioware and EA have learned from Mass Effect: Andromeda, they need to build some polish and trying to stay away from nickel and diming the customers this time and they may have a hit on their hands!
