Battlefield Hardline’s launch date was pushed back from October, after a very iffy beta, earlier this year, and today EA has revealed the new date: it’s March 17th, almost half a year after later. Better that than releasing it in the state it was in, of course.
Apparently we can expect some significant changes, including heavy weapons now being secondary objectives, and tying them to car boots instead of player inventories.
Another beta will arrive first, though. Visceral boss Steve Papoutis confirmed that a second beta would kick off before launch, and also revealed that the first expansion pack would be unveiled in January, which is, bizarrely, two months before the launch of the game.
