DICE has confirmed that the PC version of their third expansion Naval Strike for Battlefield has been delayed, with no ETA on when the water-based military destruction will hit computer monitors.

Originally planned to launch tonight for premium members and April 8th for non-premium members, DICE has revealed on the official blog that an issue was detected, preventing the expansion from being pushed out. "Quality is our number one priority" reads the post, "and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible."
We are also working on a larger update to release alongside Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC that will address the issue of Tablet Commander not working correctly. Once we have a confirmed date for PC, we’ll be sure to update those players on our official channels. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing everyone on the Battlefield.
For console players it seems the schedule is still going forward, with PlayStation and Xbox premium members getting access to Naval Strike tonight. The new expansion will add four new water-based maps, and the introduction of Carrier Assault game mode, a new take on the classic Titan Mode of Battlefield 2142.

The expansions Dragon's Teeth and Final Stand are the last two expansions, and are planned to release sometime during Winter 2014.

"and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible."

Boy did that line make me laugh. Kill cams are all over the shop, client crashes, server crashes. BF3 was a well released, bug free game compared to BF4. I dont know if Titanfall has had an impact or just the crappy experience driving people away.

Yeah it was totally the right decision to not purchase this. If only I had the same foresight for SimSuburb.

So many quotes from Dice that I could have fun with.

Clearly the quality of the finished game is not a priority for DICE.

I bet the quality has to come with download quality. EA is being cheap as f***, didn't prepare, doesn't want to pay for the bandwidth and so they just ditched the PC for the time being until after the console noobs have downloaded it.

The part where they wait till a few hours prior to release to explain how there will be no PC version yet.

Oh you, EA.

It's more stupid than that, a few hours before announcing the delay. They updated the release time.

So someone went, 8pm.. nah lets make it 9pm. Then a few hours later pulled it.

So apparently Naval Strike is ready to play on PC... how do we get it onto ourAusGamerBF4 server? Have updated procon and restarted BF4 server here??? Are we required to manually add the new maps or do we have to wait for it to be updated?

I believe an update is scheduled for our servers tonight, so once that has gone live you'll gain access to the new content.
