Battlefield Hardline has a release date

Battlefield Hardline launches on March 19 next year, EA has announced.

The game was due out this month, but was delayed by developer Visceral following feedback from the beta.

“The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing,” said studio VP Karl Magnus Troedsson at the time.

“We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.”

The release date announcement came as part of EA's fiscal 2015 Q2 financial results, which saw record revenue of US$1.22 billion. Last year EA saw revenue of US$1.04 billion in the same quarter.

Dying Light is no longer coming to Xbox 360 and PS3

Dying Light is no longer in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In a post on the game’s official Facebook page, developer Techland said that last-gen consoles simply aren’t up to the task of running the game in an acceptable fashion.

“For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits,” said Techland.
