Game delays are becoming more and more common with this generation of consoles. Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, The Order: 1886, and yet again The Witcher 3 have all been pushed back to next year to the immense groans of the community. But, you know what? I’m glad. Dragon Age Inquisition got delayed a bunch of times, and look how that turned out. Delays can only be a good thing, which is why it’s time to take a moment to look at these eight titles that should’ve been given the delay hammer.
Oh, Battlefield 4. It’s been over a year since you came out, and you had such plans for your future. DLC was going to be come out with such force and intensity, you were planning on dominating the online shooter space. But EA had plans of their own. You came out with more bugs on you than a sandwich left in the park for a few hours, you had to push back your DLC plans to work on said bugs, and worst of all, you were under investigation for releasing such a buggy mess. You keep making promises, Battlefield 4, but your promises are about as solid as Last Guardian’s development state at this point. DICE hasn’t just lost trust, they threw it in a box and sent it off to Australia while charging $70 to everyone who came into contact with the box.
