Wow, BF4 Naval Strike for PC delayed indefinitely

Looks like my next online FPS will be on my PS4 not my PC.

delays are across the platforms... and PC is worth being patient for. I can wait until they get it done right!

Good, tired of them releasing buggy trash

You know, I was kind of hoping for this. Because I know that this whole release two weeks early for premium is really just a means of beta testing.

Maybe those things will be fixed now that they've been forced to delay.

wouldn't be surprised if BF5 came out and they were still delaying/releasing DLC's for BF4 lol

They said they delayed it because it produced some performance issues. I don't quite understand how they only find that out within hours of release, but that's what they said.

Means I still have zero reason to re download it then.

Where did you get the "indefinitely" part from? They specifically said on battlelog "early April".

Also, why are people complaining? They delayed it to fix some bugs, isn't that what everyone wanted from Dice? to not rush things?

Sometimes you can find a bug in the last minute, it happens. Personally, I'm glad they decided to delay instead of patching it later.

Premium is still getting it 2 weeks early though, even after the delay.

According to Gamespot, it's just the Xbox One and PC versions that are delayed. All other platforms should get access on time.

I appreciate your positivity, but you seem to think the new DLC will be bug free. That is almost like saying Valve will release a game early. BF4 has been in a constant state of patching since its release and it's partly because they break something new with each patch.

That makes no sense. You can't get something two weeks early when there's no definite time table for when you'll get it. Also, since other people will have already played it beforehand I'm not seeing where the value of my premium membership comes into play.

It would be more bug free if they stopped adding gimmicky silly stuff that just doesn't work and doesn't add to the game experience at all.

Oh I definitely don't think it will be bug free, I was just saying that at least they're trying to be better.

What do you mean? When it's ready to release, only premium will get it. And everyone else will get it 2 weeks later.

People are still playing that broken trash? Amazing. EA sure knows how to find suckers they can nickel and dime.
