    Make you think its a tactic to boost nvidia card sales when benchmark results come out for this game it will effect sales of the 2080ti cards
    so delay benchmarks as long as possible to encourage pre sales.
    Take us for fools.

    It's probably for the best. Must not have been in good enough shape to release ahead of BO4 instead :p

    Needs more time to bake (in the Ray Tracing after gamers bitched about 1080p) in the co-op and other features that were to be added a month later. Now you get it all at once!

    - Official story somewhere in there.

    Would have thought its the low pre-orders vs COD along with RDR2 on console releasing in October

    Actually the RX 480 is the Recommended card for Battlefield V....

    My RX 480 flashed to a RX 580 played the game at 1080 / Ultra at 70-105fps

    Despite the delay, anyone want to take bets on there being some either game-breaking or hilariously ridiculous day-0 bugs?

    The delay is fine by me. Now I won't have to be in a hurry to finish the new Tomb Raider.

    The delay might be due to the whole SJW thing blowing up in EA's face. They lost dozens of millions of dollars in preorders, and now they want to get out of the way of the likes of Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption 2. So damage control, pretty much.

    Please lets not Trump out another thread because the 'Social Justice Warrior' crap is just code for Tumpisms to attack the ebil wibberals. I'm not blaming you, but this SJW thing applied to games is silly.

    On topic:
    I believe the delay is more related to working on the RTX raytracing optimization.

    Who would have thougth! Dice's CDO tells ppl that they're unnedicated and not to buy the game. Now they delay it thinking the reason is Red Dead and Black Ops. The outcome will be the same.

    It's people getting offended about nothing, then other people getting offended by people getting offended, and then the first group gets offended by the second group getting offended about them getting offended, so now they get offended by them getting offended about getting offended about getting offended...

    What the...
