Battlefield 2042 Approaching 90,000 Mostly Negative Reviews on Steam

Battlefield 2042 players are making their voices heard, with almost 90,000 total Mostly Negative reviews on Steam alone.

We’re currently approaching 2 months since the official launch of Battlefield 2042, and the game is certainly struggling.

Recently, fans dubbed Battlefield 2042 ‘one of the biggest disappointments in gaming history’, and it isn’t hard to see why.

After raising expectations with some spectacular trailers, DICE delivered a final product that massively missed the mark. Hazard Zone was dead on arrival, and it appears that Portal isn’t far behind.

Common complaints include maps feeling empty, Specialists being a poor substitute to classic Battlefield classes, and hit registration often failing entirely. Now, Battlefield 2042 matchmaking times are getting insanely long, as players move to other titles.

And after weeks of silence from EA, Battlefield 2042’s player count is being overtaken by Battlefield 1 & 5.

All the while, the negative reviews just keep on pouring in for what was once one of our most-anticipated games.

Battlefield 2042 Approaches 90,000 Negative Reviews

On Steam alone, we can see players are still unhappy with Battlefield 2042 – leaving almost 90,000 Mostly Negative reviews for the title.

At the time of this article’s writing, Battlefield 2042 has over 88,000 reviews on Steam. And with the platform listing the overall reviews as being Mostly Negative, things aren’t looking good.

In fact, that figure is almost 9 times larger than Battlefield 2042’s peak daily player count on Steam right now, a statistic that is rather telling.

Some Battlefield 2042 owners are still requesting refunds for their purchase too, with reports that Steam is even breaking policy to offer fans their money back lately.

It’s no wonder that many fans want Battlefield 2042 to be a warning against pre-orders, moving forward.

Right now, players are feeling scammed due to the lack of a Battlefield 2042 roadmap. After many gamers paid for a year’s worth of content, we’re yet to hear any official news about even Season 1.

What’s more, the EA Communications Director just criticized fans ‘brutal expectations’, a response that has become a meme in the game’s community.

Now, some fans believe that even content updates might not be enough to save Battlefield.

"Brutal expectations"? How about a complete game when it's sold? Are you guys at EA ok with buying a new car and when you go pick it find out that wheels and tires will be coming "as soon as we figure out a fix"? This is most likely my last Battlefield purchase and maybe EA also. Have been buying EA games since forever and recently it's just one unfinished product after another.

Honestly I feel like people has done nothing but hate lately and it's sad. I played BF2042 and enjoyed it imo and the devs are trying to make it better for these negative players.

Dice/EA before the interweb, had to finish their job before they sold a product. Internet has just given them the opportunity to get way lazy 'cause they know they can keep updating.

Maps feel empty ? They can't just add a whole bunch of stuff to a 64 v 64 battle it would prob be to laggy stop being a bunch of restarted baby's

Yes they can. Other games have done it already.

Ea and dice aren't some small puney company either, they have the money, time and a lot of employees to get the job done as they put out in the trailer.

Stop being a bitch and stupprt8ng companies that don't follow through on their promises
