So Bioware announced that Inquisition will now be coming out November 18th and Visceral announced that Battlefield Hardline is now coming out "early 2015." There go my November games. :(

How about they never put out Hardline because that game is a mod for BF 4 anyways.

The Hardline delay doesn't surprise me in the least... I play a ton of Battlefield 4 and even I had no interest at all in it following the beta a month back.

Why is Hardline being delayed? What the hell are they going to do to it to make it actually interesting without just making it a different game?

Sucks that DA:I is delayed though, guess I'll be playing Destiny for an extra month.

I wonder if Hardline was always planned as next year, but EA needed SOMETHING for people to get excited about at E3 this year. I'm excited for DA:O but EA always needed more then that for E3.

Could you imagine that EA press conference without even Hardline?

Dragon Age is a little surprising but kind of expected something to change with Hardline after it's reception.

As somebody who skipped BF4, I am sort of looking forward to Hardline. Here's hoping the delay does some good for the game.

God damn it :/ And here I was almost done waiting for Dragon Age. That game had better be good!

Weird about Hardline. Wonder if there'll be two Battlefield games in 2015 now.

The Dragon Age bump aint so bad, a delay of a few weeks isn't enough to give me cause for concern.

If Dragon Age is a better product because of the delay, then I'm cool with it.

Oh thank god. I was about to frown if I saw Inquisition delayed to next year too.

I'm bummed that I have to wait longer, but if they need the delay for Dragon Age than I cannot fault them for taking it. I don't think they can afford to fuck this one up if they want that franchise to continue to mean something. Only 6 weeks I suppose.

That's too bad about Dragon Age, but oh well. That's not such a bad delay (if it ships on time then).

They probably really need DA:I to hit hard. Rescheduling for prime holiday season.

Not going to complain about Dragon Age too much, though if Battlefield is going to be delayed, that's EA's ONLY big game this holiday season. Sucks to be them.

I wouldn't say Hardline is EA's only big game for the holiday, certainly the biggest, but I think Dragon Age is going to do quite well for them. In this age of Skyrim breaking the 20 million mark and Game of Thrones being the most popular show on TV, a fantasy RPG with elves and dragons isn't the niche product it once was.

This seems to me like a "welp, if Hardline isn't gonna make 2014, then we better just goose Dragon Age as OUR release for the holidays". Makes sense in that scheme, though I'm legitimately looking forward to it so waiting an extra six weeks is a bit of letdown. Six more weeks to prep that day one DLC amirite!?

I had no idea what the Inquisition release date was in the first place. Combined with the fact that I'm pretty solid on the game being okay, but not what I'd be looking for from the series (oh, and also because games are only ever delayed for ill because they're trying to fit into a specific release slot), I'm pretty much okay with that.

Hardline... yeah... you might as well be telling me Barbie Dream House Party 2 was delayed into 2015, because I just don't play online shooters regardless of their status. Actually, at least the latter would have made for an amusing Quick Look.

Hmmmmm.

Not a good sign for Dragon Age I think. This is a pretty late delay - did the game fail certification? - very likely, if you consider how soon it was to be available, time required before that to manufacture discs and ship to stores and then the time in cert. Can't imagine what else it would be.

Lots of bugs to kill in very little time :S

As for Hardline... What? Too hialrious EA.

This sucks for DA:I but I don't really care for Hardline at all after the beta.
