Sony Online Entertainment has announced the Planetside 2 beta is now expected out by the middle of January on PlayStation 4,
The game was due to hit in 2014, but it appears to have been delayed by a few weeks.
Planetside 2 originally hit beta form on PC two years ago, although the PS4 version has been specifically designed to work well with the Dualshock 4 controller.
"As much as it sounds like we're blowing smoke, we're working hard to release a game that feels like a full-on console experience and not just like a port," creative director Matt Higby said. "So it's taken us quite a long time to re-jigger our user interface and our controls. There's a lot that needs to get done."
