Battlefield V is available now for all to enjoy and though there are tons of plans for additional content on the way, the first of the Tides of War update - Overture - has unfortunately run into a few issues that has delayed its release.
DICE took to Twitter to announce the reason behind the delay, though nothing else has been updated at this time:
The team has discovered an issue with the #Battlefield Chapter 1: Overture update. Rather than create issues in the game, we’re holding the update for the time being. We don’t anticipate a long delay and we’ll be back with more news tomorrow or as soon as we have it. pic.twitter.com/bc6xlWPc8e— #Battlefield V (@Battlefield) December 3, 2018
