DICE's financial report reveals its much-anticipated PC shooter won't deploy until the final part of Q2; console version due on "Microsoft's forthcoming platform" by year's end.
Throughout history, major military offensives have seen their launch dates in constant flux. Such was the case with Battlefield 2, one the most anticipated military games of 2005. Originally set for a "Spring 2005" release, the game was moved forward to a March release date last year, before slipping back to its original Q2 window.
Now it seems the game is getting a more concrete release date. In the annual earnings report it released today, Battlefield 2 developer Digital Illusions CE (DICE) revealed that its flagship shooter won't hit PCs until the end of the second quarter. "The release date of Battlefield 2 has now been set to June 2005," read the company's financial report, which did not list a specific date. "This implies that Digital Illusions will not be making any game releases in the first quarter of the current year."
