PlanetSide Arena Delayed to Summer 2019

Daybreak wants to launch PlanetSide Arena for both PC and PS4 at the same time.

Daybreak Games has announced it's delaying PlanetSide Arena to summer 2019. Rather than releasing the PC and PS4 versions separately, Daybreak is delaying PlanetSide Arena so it launches simultaneously on both platforms.

"After much consideration, we've decided to postpone the current PC-only release date and launch simultaneously across PC and PlayStation 4 this summer," Daybreak Games wrote today in a new blog post. The delay will also give the developers time to make improvements and incorporate feedback from the private beta.

Daybreak Games also announced that since PlanetSide Arena has been pushed back into the summer, it will be refunding all Planetside Arena pre-orders. There were previously two different versions of PlanetSide Arena available for pre-order on Steam.

PlanetSide Arena is an online multiplayer game set in Daybreak's PlanetSide universe. While there's set to be a variety of different game modes for PlanetSide Arena, it was supposed to launch with two massive battle royale modes and a 250 vs. 250 team deathmatch mode. Daybreak said that PlanetSide Area can support up to 1,000 players.

During our hands-off look at PlanetSide Arena, we saw a massive world that offered a scale unlike any other battle royale game. But since our early look in December, Respawn has launched its own popular battle royale with Apex Legends. And EA DICE is similarly planning a battle royale for Battlefield 5 this spring. With such a crowded battle royale field, Daybreak could be adding extra polish and come out of the gates swinging.

PlanetSide Arena's Steam page still has its original March 26 release date but is no longer available for pre-order.
