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.
