It's gonna suck so who cares?
What is your secret to seeing into the future?
They were trying to push a bunch of features and content after release championing the decision by calling the game a "live service". Even their own game changers youtube shills called them out on their B.S. saying things like don't expect a finished game ever again going forward.
Just off the top of my head things that were being pushed till after release, vehicle customization, co-op maps, ability to drag wounded players, battle royale mode, mortars. Probably some other stuff.
Even all that doesn't really mater, DICE screwed up because they announced they were making a WWII Battlefield game and people painted a mental picture of BF1942 with better graphics and modern gameplay in their head. What they ended up making is a completely wishy-washy WWII experience. The map in the alpha was just so-so, after a short time playing it the repetitive nature of the gameplay crept in. The game just doesn't capture the open sandbox feel of what Battlefield used to be about, you could play maps in Battlefield 2 for hundreds of hours and have different experiences playing on them.
I don't think extra development time is going to help much, just give it a little more spit polish but the core game is set in stone and it's another three to six month wonder at best.
