Battlefield 2042 is currently losing a lot of players to older Battlefield titles – and fans seem happy about that fact!
It’s not hard to see that Battlefield 2042 wasn’t exactly what fans were hoping for. After some incredible trailers, the game simply didn’t manage to live up to its own hype.
Not only that, but the Battlefield 2042 Beta was broken for a lot of players, causing Battlefield fans to cancel their pre-orders.
Recently, we’ve been seeing Battlefield 2042 losing its player base fast. And now, it seems that fans are jumping back into their favorite older Battlefield games instead.
Battlefield 2042 Players Are Returning to Older Battlefield Games
Battlefield players are abandoning 2042, instead returning to older games in the franchise such as Battlefield 1 and 5.
It has only been a month and a half since the release of Battlefield 2042 and already fans are calling it quits. Lately, Battlefield 2042 players have been struggling to find a game, and many are giving up on the title entirely.
Meanwhile, Battlefield 5 has a higher player count than Battlefield 2042 on Steam right now, and for good reason. The older title is a ‘true’ Battlefield experience, more in line with what players want out of their shooter.
Now it seems that fans are happy that Battlefield 2042 is losing players to older titles. In a new post on the Battlefield 2042 subreddit, fans comment on the state of the franchise:
“I’m happy to let 2042 die in order to save the franchise,” Reddit user BDFL writes. “A battle lost to win the war for Battlefield’s soul is well worth it in my opinion.”
This sentiment is echoed by hundreds of Battlefield fans on the forum, which should be concerning for EA. Hopefully, the publisher decides to act fast to fix 2042’s issues, before it’s too late.
Battlefield 2042 fans are still demanding a voice chat and scoreboard feature this long after launch. And with players dropping like flies, many users believe Battlefield 2042 needs to go Free-to-Play to survive.
But at least new content is on the way, with the first Battlefield 2042 DLC map leaking early.
Unfortunately, the new map’s release date is still far away…
