Battlefield 5's Grand Operations mode will be playable at launch after all

Battlefield V

The original new post on the official Battlefield website noted that Grand Operations would be available "shortly after launch", without going into much detail on the exact reasons for the delay or specifically when players could jump into the mode.

Update: DICE updated the original blog post mentioning that the information it included was outdated, and Grand Operations will actually be available at launch. It is a massive multiplayer mode that will be very narrative-heavy so we believe it will be one hell of an experience.

Here's hoping that Grand Operations does in fact arrive "shortly after launch".

The Briton has won five times previously at the Hungaroring, but never in a year in which he has gone on to take the championship. "I think we had the speed today". "It's great for the team to have a one-two", added Hamilton.

First revealed at this year's E3, Grand Operations are described as Battlefield 5's "ultimate multiplayer experience", with multi-mission, 64-player matches that include historically accurate narrative elements and unfold over several in-game days. Each day will impact the events of the next day, with rewards being distributed to the team that performs well, and the team on the losing side being forced to cope with less ammo, fewer respawns, and other such issues with their resources.

So it looks as though players will have to wait just a tad bit longer in order to play the new Grand Operations mode in the upcoming Battlefield game. The mode is set to be frequently updated across its lifespan, with more Grand Operations to be released in "the months that follow".

When asked about a possible stand-alone Battle Royale version for Battlefield V, CFO Blake Jorgensen shared that the team might be open to experimenting with a free-to-play standalone game in the future, but that's it's not how the team is looking at the BR mode for Battlefield.
