Battlefield 5 DLC Delayed Due to Technical Issues

As we reported yesterday, Battlefield 5's "Overture" was supposed to launch today. But on the official Battlefield Twitter, the developers announced that the new DLC has been delayed due to an unspecified issue. As of now, there's no concrete timetable for the free DLC's release, but the developers said "We don't anticipate a long delay and we'll be back with more news tomorrow or as soon as we have it." DICE went into a little more detail in an official Reddit post, and they streamed some gameplay from the new expansion on Twitch, for those that want a preview.

As we were preparing the final checks in releasing our next game update Chapter 1: Overture tomorrow, we've encountered a couple of issues as we implement some of the new improvements to the game and servers. Knowing that, we're putting more time in testing the build and will be pushing back deployment until we can ensure the update is solid. We know a lot of you are excited for this content, and we're excited to get it to you, but only once we can ensure the experience is great.*
