With the latest Battlefield 4 from EA DICE already hitting the stands, it can be said without any real doubt that this is probably the most problematic title release ever by the company. It has have arrived with a massive number of bugs and issues and requires almost regular updates on every platform to keep all those problems at bay. However, fans that have been facing issues with the game that’s running on the newly released Xbox One are in for some bad news since the DICE has confirmed that its next game update for the same will be delayed and will eventually arrive alongside the next title update for the game at a later date.

DICE initially planned to roll out a new Xbox One update for Battlefield 4 on December 2. However, the company has now decided to delay that update to make way for a new title update, while also confirming that the Xbox One patch will be included in the same.

Confirming the news via the official Battlelog forums, DICE wrote: “Here's a quick update on the state of the next Xbox One game update. The update that was originally meant to go live the week of Dec 2 was delayed, but we decided to bring those fixes to the next upcoming Xbox One update.”

“This new combined Xbox One patch is currently in testing and certification, and we will release it as soon as possible. We are hoping to get it live late this week or early next week. We will keep you updated.”

“We will share the full change notes for this patch as it goes live. It will focus on stability and some of the feedback we’ve seen from the community, including a fix for the one-hit kill bug and Commander EMP blur effect,” it adds.

Battlefield 4 has been subjected to a number of different update for different platforms over the past few weeks. And only recently did the PS4 version of the game receive a massive 600MB patch that, according to the company, “should remove a large amount of the client crashes.”

The updates for the game for all the platforms have also been flowing in after EA Studios EVP Patrick Soderlund, earlier this month, agreed that the company has to do “a better job of getting games into the market that are as bug-free as possible.”
