"Battlefield Hardline" and "Dragon Age Inquisition" have been delayed. According to a report from NZ Gamer on July 23, Electronic Arts confirmed that the release dates for both multiplatform games got pushed back. The third main "Dragon Age" game was first set to come out on Oct. 7 while the latest "Battlefield" title was initially due to launch on Oct. 21.

Mark Darrah explained the new "Dragon Age Inquisition" release date by stating that the development team is trying to create the best game in the series to date. He went on to admit that they have plenty left to do with some of the contents still need to be completed. The studio also need to fix several glitches in addition to enhancing the overall experience at the same time. As a result, the sequel won't be coming out until Nov. 18.

The delay is actually the second one for "Dragon Age Inquisition." The project was originally scheduled to be completed in late 2013 before suffering a year long postponement as Bioware wanted to add more features to the action role-playing game. A screen from of the sequel can be viewed on the top side of the article (via the official Facebook account of the software product).

The situation regarding "Battlefield Hardline" is a little bit more complicated. Visceral Games wanted to add more elements to both the single-player campaign as well as the multiplayer mode. The studio is taking feedback from the beta and internal testing in order to evolve the online elements, which were previously criticized as being too similar to "Battlefield 4." Finally, the developer wanted to ensure that the servers are going to be stable after the disastrous launch of the previous game.

"Battlefield Hardline" is now expected to launch sometime in early 2015. Karl-Magnus Troedsson stated that the company will be keeping fans updated on the progress of the project. The general manager at Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment also reminded fans to pick up the upcoming Dragon’s Teeth and Final Stand expansions of "Battlefield 4."
