The EA communications director has finally responded to the Battlefield 2042 fan backlash from angry and disappointed players.
It’s fair to say that the launch of Battlefield 2042 was far from smooth. Unfortunately, this rocky release has continued in 2022 as well.
With the game still lacking polish and being plagued by glitches, the Battlefield 2042 player count is dropping every day. It has gotten so bad that many Battlefield fans are happy that older Battlefield titles now have more players than 2042.
However, this doesn’t mean that players have given up on Battlefield 2042 just yet. In fact, they have been very vocal about all of the improvements Battlefield 2042 needs despite EA’s silence on the matter over the past few weeks.
That silence has just come to an end though with the EA communications director responding to Battlefield 2042 fan backlash.
Battlefield 2042 Fan Expectations are “Brutal”, Says EA Communications Director
Shortly after the game’s director said that Battlefield 2042 improvements will “take some time”, the communications director at EA has weighed in on the fan backlash.
Yesterday, EA communications director, Andy McNamara posted a couple of rather controversial (and since deleted) tweets about the ongoing work DICE is putting in to fix Battlefield 2042.
Many fans were not happy to see that McNamara responded to the Battlefield 2042 backlash by calling fan expectations “brutal”. This is because all they want is Battlefield 2042 to be in a more playable state – something which they would argue should have been the case at launch.
However, it isn’t all bad news. At least DICE has “things in motion” to fix the game.
Unfortunately, fans should still temper their expectations somewhat. This is because McNamara says it will “take time to scope, design, and execute” these improvements.
Let’s just hope that the next Battlefield 2042 is better than the broken update 3 which led to fans requesting refunds for the game! Otherwise, the backlash from Battlefield 2042 players will get even worse.
Despite plenty of fans not enjoying it, there are still some Battlefield 2042 players looking forward to future updates. A leaker has revealed the first image of an upcoming new map – Exposure.
