The Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 was supposed to receive a title update last week to fix numerous issues with the game including crashes and one-hit kills. That didn't happen and the PS4 version of the military shooter has received two titles updates in the meantime. DICE finally provided an update Wednesday on the status of the Xbox One patch.

DICE revealed on the Battlelog forums that the patch intended to be released last week was delayed but did not give a reason. Instead, "we decided to bring those fixes to the next upcoming Xbox One update."

"This new combined Xbox One patch is currently in testing and certification, and we will release it as soon as possible," the DICE community manager explained. "We are hoping to get it live late this week or early next week. We will keep you updated."

While the full list of fixes was not revealed, the upcoming patch will address the stability issues with the game along with the one-hit kill but and the Commander EMP blur effect.

The developer also released an issue tracker yesterday meant to keep players up to date on the status of the most pressing defects with Battlefield 4. It has already been updated to reflect the update that was released to the PS4 today.
