Battlefield 4 Naval Strike PC and Xbox One Update

DICE has provided more detail today about the delay of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike. The team delayed the PC version of Naval Strike because they are concerned that the combination of the pack and planned PC updates would increase performance issues on mid-range to high-end PCs. DICE is working hard to resolve that issue now. Additionally, the team decided to delay the Xbox One version of Naval Strike because they want to address issues in the animation system that hinder players from engaging targets in set circumstances using popular weapon configurations.

We know that many Battlefield 4 Premium owners wanted to play Naval Strike today. However, the team didn’t want to release the new content until they believed it was quality content.

The DICE team is trying to resolve these problems as quickly as possible and hope to release the update in early April for Xbox One and PC. We also want to remind Xbox One and PC owners of Battlefield 4 Premium that they will have two weeks early access for Naval Strike once it’s released. Thanks for your continued patience and passion for our games.

    Yo! be nice boys. These games are highly complex and we are lucky as F*** to have these broken games. Remeber Atari? We've come a long way and I have to admit I've had some pretty epic games on BF4! But seriously Dice/ EA, I cant download Naval Strike on XBOX ONE right now and its pretty F******* annoying! Probably, more than likely my last premium account for this franchise. Only because some premium members on XBOX ONE were able to get the DLC today.

    What a sight for sore eyes this is, being the first officially announced statement regarding launch delays other than some random dice dev insider hiding behind a locked thread. For Dice to mention any information to anyone about "content quality" is upsetting, regarding the current quality of Battlefield 4 on multiple platform levels. Another topic is why we will still receive content two weeks early? Why would they delay content any further for these people? They're destroying the BF nation

      A discount on the maps you were going to buy anyways and lots of exclusive guns/camo/knives/etc.

    Seriously? I mean thanks for telling us and all, but this whole issue is kind of ridiculous. We get that you're trying to fix this as soon as possible but deadlines shouldn't be missed with as much promotion as you guys put out prior to the "release." Also, being a premium member, I don't think its really fair to make everyone else wait two additional weeks just so we can play first. They shouldn't be penalized for your mistakes and I don't even care about having a 2 week "preview."

    That's really crappy to do the day of the release. Also, can you make sure for xbox one that you get rid of all of the flickering textures in several of the maps.

    This is a pretty crappy move. Seriously. I understand these things are complex, but honestly, its their job so they should probably get it together, and if Dice and EA wanted to get out of this gigantic hole they have dug then they would bite the bullet and give all those who bought premium for BF4 free premium on the next installment. You can't expect to make bank if you're gonna suck at your job. I love battlefield and there's obviously a lot of talent behind the game, but come on.

    The PS4 Naval Strike is flawed as well but that didn't stop them from releasing it.

    Don't really give a toss at this point. Titanfall is proving amusement enough. Hopefully you can lure me back if it's ever ready to go.

    I understand that a lot goes into making these games, and I'm an avid fan. That being said this is BS. Dice and EA should give refunds to all premium members, and then give the DLCs to everyone with an origin account. Titanfall was released with no problems cause they made sure it was right before launch. Why couldn't EA do the same with this game?

    EA I really hope that your stock market prices go south again as result of this to make your guys wake-up, or alternatively sack your development director.

    These guys are even late with scheduled gold battle packs! Dont wait til the last hour to tell us either! And your solution to the problem is to make non premium members to wait 2 weeks after we get it??? You guys are inept and they have to pay for it?? Just reward the premium members with some extra gold packs. Dont punish these guys because you're bad at your job! As a paying premium member, that definetly doesn't right the ship with me. It makes me more upset!!

    I feel as though the bf4 franchise should just stop making anything further give premium members there $50 back give everyone the broken China rising and Second Assault maps for free and call it quits. I have played all of the battlefields and this one is just disgraceful as far as "Quality" well the lack of. Gamers don't care about what Frostbite you wanted to use for whatever reason we just want games that work and so far this one really hasnt.

    Thank god I didn't just buy premium and found this **** out. Also I think it's really awesome you guys are doing such a good job at ******* my free time up. I work full time and have one hell of an annoying gf BF4 on xbox one is my only entertainment. And it only seems to work how I want it to about 30% of the time. I think you guys at EA are a bunch of ****. Thank you

    Here we go again. What a joke. I've had more problems with this game than any other game ever. You really would think dice would have learned from their mistakes after bf3 but instead they have actually just gotten a lot worse this time around. How about we just make sure the game can function before we put out the next time, I mean a skyscraper falling can only take u so far. I really don't know what's worse the xbox one or this game since they both crash on a regular basis

    I still can't get it on the xbox. I really wish i didn't listen to people and get the xbox one. I can actually download naval strike on ps4 but that's because playstation actually functions properly of course bf4 doesn't always function properly though. Oh I actually had to buy a ps4 because the xbox one has that so problems but I had already purchased premium on xbox so I was trying to avoid buying that again but since I can't get this on xbox I may have to and yes I'd have to buy it twice

    At first i have to say that the battlefield games are my favorite games. But why dice is talking about "quality content" when the whole game isn't working fine month after the release? The game still have problems like crashes or issue with xbox party and so on. Bf4 still have problems and they say the reason for the naval strike delay is that they always want to offer "quality content". With this reason Battlefield 4 should not released until today, cause it still have problems. Strange world...
