As we close out November, Battlefield 2042 hits its lowest player count of the month not even 2 weeks after launch.
Battlefield 2042 finally launched for all users on November 19 and it wasn’t the success that we were hoping for. Ever since the game’s first trailer, we’ve had Battlefield 2042 as one of our most anticipated titles of 2021.
Now, DICE’s shooter is finally here and already fans are dropping the game for other experiences. Over the last few days, we’ve been paying close attention to the Battlefield 2042 player count and things are looking bleak.
Recently, we saw Battlefield 2042 lose half of its player base since launch day. And while it’s normal for a game to drop off over time, EA’s title seems to be doing so at a rapidly-increasing pace.
It’s understandable as to why we’re seeing a dip. After all, Battlefield 2042 already has over 60,000 Mostly Negative reviews on Steam.
But at this rate, there aren’t going to be many players in Battlefield 2042 left.
Battlefield 2042 Player Count Dropping on Steam
It seems that Battlefield 2042 is continuing to drop in player count on Steam for PC. And while not all users will be playing on the platform, it’s sure to be representative of the overall player response to the game.
Recently, we saw that Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone mode is already dead, with players struggling to find a match.
We also took a look at the dying Battlefield Portal mode which is starting to become a ghost town of gradually emptying servers.
Now, it seems that the game itself may well be in big trouble. With every passing day, Battlefield 2042 appears to be dropping in player count.
Right now, SteamCharts reports that Battlefield 2042 had a 24-hour peak of 35,347 players. At its lowest point in that time period, the game hit a record low of just 20,124 players.
Here’s why Battlefield 2042 is losing players so early in its lifespan!
Of course, this doesn’t account for those playing exclusively through Origin and other platforms on PC, nor does it account for console users. But seeing Battlefield 2042 fall from 100,000 on launch day to figures like these may well be a cause for concern.
Right now, Battlefield 2042 players want smaller player counts in-game to fix stability and performance issues.
And DICE has a lot of work to do, with Battlefield 2042 still having major hit registration issues so far after launch.
Thankfully, a new fix for the Battlefield 2042 hit registration problem is here, and it’s only a matter of time before improvements arrive.
The question is: will it be too late to save the game?
