Battlefield 3 double XP weekend delayed for PC

Bad news for a good chunk of the 6.3 million active players of Battlefield 3 — GameSpy is reporting that the double XP event originally scheduled for this past weekend has been pushed back two weeks for PC players, now on tap for the 26th and 27th.

The rescheduling announcement came in the form of a tweet from the official Battlefield Twitter account, stating that the move was made in order to salvage the “full weekend as planned.”

No word on the actual reason for the delay has been given.

While a two week wait for quality some XP hoarding may seem a bit long, the move may turn out to be a shrewd one. With Diablo 3 dropping tomorrow, somehow I think not too many PC gamers are going to mind the wait all that much.
