EA Community Manager Daniel Matros, talks about the upcoming patch’s release date while Gameplay Designer Alan Kertz, explains the process and why DICE opts for bigger patches.

Matros did state the “game update will drop before DLC.” He assures that “when there is an ETA I will post it.” Luckily, it seems that we can expect it sooner than later as he admits, “dropping an update in June [same month as DLC] is crazy.” The update should be released “very much closer to now.” He added that “with a bit of luck, there is a tentative date coming end of next week. *crossing fingers*”

Alan Kertz was recently asked why DICE opts to release big, spaced-out patches, rather than releasing smaller, more frequent ones, once the bug in question has been fixed. He explains that it is “not possible due to the overhead of the patch process and the interdependency of patch fixes.”
