Shares of Electronic Arts EA closed down 5.7% to $137.04 during regular trading but rallied 2.7% in the extended session following the company’s announcement that its Battlefield 2042 would be delayed until Nov 19. It was initially slated for launch on Xbox, PS, and PC on Oct 22.The company cited unforeseen challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic, which delayed the return of its development staff to offices as the reason behind the delay.In Battlefield 2042, the world is on the verge of collapse with failed nations due to the shortage of food, energy, and clean water, which leads to the greatest refugee crisis in the history of humanity.The new Battlefield Portal, which enables players to make and share custom game types using assets from multiple Battlefield games including 1942, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 has become an instant attraction. It also comes with a new game mode called Hazard Zone.The game will allow as many as 128 players at once in the PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5, which is the largest number for this series. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will be able to play matches featuring up to 64 players on reduced map sizes.Electronic Arts Inc.
