Ben from EA said that the problem with release is that the current code is 
laggy and is unsuitable for release. (I don't recall the exact wording.) 
Apparently EA has some kind of network testing available that's not 
available to DICE, or DICE hasn't integrated it into their build system so 
that that can be checked before releasing code to EA.

One common hubris among programmers or any creative developer is the 
assumption that this will be the "final final" release and there will be no 
more patches, that the current release is golden. DICE should assume that 
won't be the case for some time and begin integrating regression testing 
into their process so that this doesn't happen in the future, so that they 
can test for things like overly-laggy code before giving it to EA.
