Battlefield 4 developer DICE has announced that the Xbox One version of forthcoming DLC Naval Strike has fallen afoul of a delay, making it the second version of the content to be held up this week. In a post on the game's official blog, the studio has outlined the reasons for both delays:
We have delayed the PC version of Naval Strike because we are concerned that the combination of the pack and planned PC updates would increase performance issues on mid-range to high-end PCs. We are working hard to resolve that issue now. Additionally, we have decided to delay the Xbox One version of Naval Strike because we 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, we didn’t want to release the new content until we believed it was quality content.
We are 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
There's no such hold up for PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360 owners, however, as they were able to get their mitts on the water-based maps yesterday.
