We pinned an Update at the end of the article!
What happened? Well-known insiders like Jeff Grubb (via Twitter) and Tom Henderson (via Twitter) are currently tweeting what the keyboard can take. In their tweets, they say that Battlefield 2042 will be postponed. Just yesterday, gamers were disappointed when Dying Light 2 was moved to Spring 2022.

Battlefield 2042 is about to be postponed: That would be the new release
Postponement-Season: In the coming hours, we should receive an announcement from Electronic Arts, which announces a postponement of Battlefield 2042. This was reported by Tom Henderson and Jeff Grubb.
Henderson is also already talking about a new release date for Battlefield 2042. According to him, Dice and EA have set a date in late November 2021. Whether that is true or not remains to be seen soon.
What about the beta? Furthermore, the start date for the beta should not be changed. Leaks speak of a beta start on September 22nd. However, pre-orders of Battlefield 2042 are allowed to start a little earlier.
Beta doesn't seem to be delayed thus far. Sept 22nd is still the date.
