Fans of the Battlefield series have been watching and waiting eagerly for DICE’s free-to-play experiment that is Battlefield Heroes. Which is why its consistent and shameless delaying turns our smiles upside down. Initially it was delayed to late 2008, which it clearly missed, and then more recently it was delayed into 2009. While we’re glad they’re not rushing this out the door, we’re also saddened by its constant delaying. We’d almost be better off without a projected time line and be satisfied with beta invites and more consistent updates. We’re hopeful they will work out all the problems that may arise with the microtransaction model they’re putting in place, and work out all the potential technical bugs. Otherwise, the delays will go in vain and the community may not be forgiving.
