Battlefield 2042 fans are attempting to force a response from EA and DICE by boycotting the game in a new protest.
It’s been an interesting few days for members of the Battlefield 2042 community. After the game’s rocky launch, players are now growing tired of the silence from EA and DICE, taking matters into their own hands.
Recently, the new Battlefield Director told fans that improvements would take some time. And while the developers are only just arriving back in the office after their Christmas break, change isn’t coming fast enough for many fans.
Then just the other day, EA Communications Director Andy McNamara called fan expectations “brutal”, something that didn’t go down well with the community.
Now the Battlefield 2042 subreddit is even warning fans that it may lockdown due to negativity, which may be the final straw for many players.
And with many Battlefield 2042 players feeling scammed, a boycott of the game is allegedly taking place next week.
Battlefield 2042 Boycott Planned By Subreddit Users
Members of the Battlefield 2042 subreddit are staging a boycott of the game to protest against DICE and EA.
In an interesting turn of events, the Battlefield 2042 community appears to be organizing a boycott. In response to the recent statements by EA staff and /r/Battlefield2042 moderators, the fans are taking action.
“Sadly our opinions and sentiment have been taken negatively by Dice and EA,” Reddit user reuben1130 writes. “They don’t want to hear what we have to say in reality.
Instead of taking this opportunity to apologize, show remorse, double back with updates and give their customers their actual moneys worth, we are met with silence and feelings of annoyance with inaction.”
Now, the Battlefield 2042 community is attempting to stage a boycott taking place on January 14 at 8 PM ET. The protest will last until January 16 at 11 PM ET, with members stepping away from the game all weekend.
However, some players are reporting that they’ve been boycotting Battlefield 2042 for weeks now. We’ve certainly noticed as much, with Battlefield 2042’s player count falling below Battlefield 5 on Steam.
In fact, it seems that bots are flooding Battlefield 2042 matchmaking as players leave the game.
And as it stands, not even content updates will be enough to save EA’s shooter.
With these great FPS games launching in 2022 alone, we’re not sure that there’ll be a Battlefield 2042 to come back to after the boycott.
