It seems that Battlefield 2042 fans are done with the game, labeling it as ‘one of the biggest disappointments in gaming history.’
It’s only been 2 months since the launch of Battlefield 2042 but in that time we’ve had very little word from DICE about the state of the game.
After launching a new Battlefield title with no voice chat, scoreboard, limited weaponry, and more, players have been quick to make their opinions heard. But after limited response from the developer, fans are still requesting refunds for Battlefield 2042.
On top of that, it’s clear that the player count is dropping off the game at an alarming rate. Battlefield 2042 matchmaking times are getting insanely long, as players begin to leave EA’s new shooter behind.
And with both Battlefield 1 and 5 overtaking 2042 in player base, according to Steam statistics, the publisher should be worried.
Now that Battlefield 2042 isn’t part of Steam’s top 100 games list, fans are calling it ‘one of the biggest disappointments in gaming history.’
Battlefield 2042 is a Major Disappointment, Say Players
Some Battlefield 2042 players are quick to label EA’s latest shooter as one of gaming’s biggest disappointments.
It’s clear that the fans on the Battlefield 2042 subreddit are not happy with the game as it stands. In the past, we’ve even seen some forum users insist that DICE should scrap Battlefield 2042 to start over completely.
It’s easy to sympathize with the community there. After all, many gamers were hoping for Battlefield 2042 to be the love letter to the franchise it claims to be.
Now, as thousands of players give up on the title completely, Reddit users are calling the game a ‘disappointment’. Some even worry that Battlefield 2042 could be the end of Battlefield for good.
“Can you imagine telling yourself last year when this game was announced and the trailers dropped that the game would end up like this?” Bn1995 writes, in a popular new post. “Broken, empty and a laughing stock across a large portion of the fan base. Its incredible.”
It seems that other commenters are quick to agree with the user’s assessment too. DeathStalker131 even points out that most major disappointments are single-player experiences like Cyberpunk 2077.
“Battlefield 2042 is literally a $60 multiplayer game with no story or singleplayer, which automatically sends it straight to the top.. Or bottom”
And $60 is actually being generous where Battlefield 2042 is concerned. Many players paid nearer $100+ for the Gold or Ultimate Edition just for a chance to play early.
Now, it seems that many fans are hoping that Battlefield 2042 will be a warning against pre-orders in the future.
But thankfully, the new Battlefield Director promises that improvements are coming. Let’s just hope that they come soon enough.
Unfortunately, EA’s Communications Director just went viral for some unfortunate statements that don’t help 2042’s case…
