Battlefield Hardline Delay Pushes Back Battlefield 4′s Final Stand DLC

bf4-final-standDuring a call with Electronic Arts investors, EA CEO Andrew Wilson mentioned that Final Stand is now delayed and “coming Q3.” The company’s fiscal Q3, to which he was referring, runs from October 1 and December 31, 2014.

With this, the revive icon is changed to include a progress circle (much like what you get when arming/disarming an MCOM. This progress meter indicates to you how much time is left before the player becomes unrevivable.
