DICE has announced that the first season for Battlefield 2042 is being delayed so the team can deliver an improved experience and address more of the feedback that it has received from players who haven’t been happy with the big-budget shooter thus far.

“We’ve had to make some big decisions to ensure that our next set of updates can be focused on delivering these improvements, with the most substantial one being to move the release date of our first Season to early Summer,” DICE revealed in a new Battlefield Briefing regarding the development of Season One.

“This decision gives us the time to focus on improving the Battlefield 2042 experience while finalizing the development of our seasonal content to ensure that it all reaches our standard for quality,” the developer explained.

In the meantime, DICE has detailed some of the more immediate improvements that in the queue for Battlefield 2042, promising that they will be implemented “as soon as possible.” They include:

  • A refined, more comprehensive Scoreboard
  • Voice communication (VOIP) features
  • Player profile changes for a better overview
  • Team play and gunplay improvements
  • Tools, modes, and other additions to Portal

DICE is also doubling down on its commitment to improving Battlefield 2042 by implementing a new feedback loop that should give the developer a better idea of what players want out of the game. Per DICE:

  • We will present specific, major focus areas to you along with our current thinking, detailing where we’re planning to make changes.
  • We’ll then take the time to observe and listen to the conversations that you go on to have about both the area of concern and our proposals for adjustment.
  • Later, you’ll hear from us on the topic again but this time your feedback will have been factored into our consideration and guided the decisions made for improvements.
