EA's confirmed speculation that the forthcoming Euro Force "Booster Pack" for Battlefield 2 has been delayed.

The pack has been set back because the 1.2 patch for Battlefield 2 has been set back, according to an EA community update, and the new patch is a prerequisite for Euro Force.

"We really felt that it was important to delay the patch and take care of some of the issues that have had the community concerned," says Euro Force producer AJ Marini.

"Look for Euro Force to be released in the latter half of February now."

Developer DICE is also holding off on a feature allowing you to pick up deployed mines with the G key. "In the end, we felt it just wasn't complete enough for public consumption," says Marini.

Marini also listed a few features which will be sorted out in the update. Those were:

  • Being able to pass through walls using a spinning tank turret has been fixed. It has also been addressed on all rotating vehicle positions just to be safe.
  • The disappearance of tank projectiles and grenade launcher projectiles during online play has been improved and should occur less frequently.
  • The distance for throwing hand grenades, ammo packs, and health packs has been increased.
  • And the Red/Blue nametag bug has been addressed.

The 1.2 patch will be out "very soon".
