Not that i want to explain to you that they are not only capatalists, 
But a company that makes money (SEE: Profit) for its shareholders (Their 
ONLY objective), But there are many reasons to delay a game, and few of 
them are development related - As this is a franchise, and by reviewing 
figures based on bfv (low end) and bf42 (high end) they can fairly 
accurately predict sales. If you think you have a soft fiscal 
year/quarter in the near future, you move one of your high-sellers to 
that quarter - This is simple economics. For you to assume its a dev 
issue - When has ea actually delayed a launch due to a bug or two...?

They may take advantage of the delay - Add some features, square away a 
few issues - But i doubt it. Likely the CD print dates are still the 
same - We'll just see the first bf2 patch a bit earlier :)

</crystal ball>
