Delays in the release of major AAA games these days are common to the point of being expected.

It appears as Battlefield 2042, one of the major shooters scheduled for this fall is no exception.

The 'internal delays' are only affecting the testing phase, with the game's launch date apparently unaffected.

Well known industry insider and leaker Tom Henderson is best known for his scoops on the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises.

This time, his contacts have revealed something about the internal strife affecting the development of Battlefield 2042.

The game has gone through one technical test which let players try out one of the upcoming game's maps.

Since then not a peep could be heard from DICE about other tests, even though a broader beta was expected.

In the past, Henderson predicted that we'd hear official word about the beta within the August 31st - September 2nd timeframe.

Now, this timeframe is increasingly looking incorrect.

The leaker shared an image of an email conversation with a trusted source.

This is what revealed the apparent "internal delays", though the source does not elaborate and they themselves do not know any more or what said delays entail.

The October 22 release date is apparently not affected.
