Battlefield fans are becoming increasingly concerned that Battlefield 2042 is the death of the Battlefield series – here’s why!
Many gamers would argue that the Battlefield 2042 launch has been nothing short of a disaster. Glitches and issues have plagued the game since release day and there’s still so much that DICE has to fix.
Shortly after Battlefield fans said that Battlefield 2042 should be a warning to never pre-order games, thanks to its broken launch, players have now become worried about the future of the series.
It’s bad enough that players think that content updates might not be enough to save Battlefield 2042. However, what would be even worse is if this game brings the death of the Battlefield series.
Unfortunately, as fans plan a huge boycott of Battlefield 2042, they also worry about the future of the legendary FPS series.
Is the Battlefield Series Dead After Battlefield 2042?
Battlefield 2042 has been out for almost two months, yet improvements and fixes will still take some more time. But does the game, and the series as a whole, have any time left?
A popular new post on the Battlefield 2042 subreddit poses the question, ‘is this the death of the Battlefield series?’ It looks like many fans seem to think so.
The post calls Battlefield 2042 “a total disaster from day 1” and it’s hard to disagree with that. The Battlefield 2042 player count has dropped so much that bots are filling lobbies.
However, it isn’t just the quality of the game that is concerning long-time fans of the series.
Additionally, it is DICE’s handling of the situation that is concerning Battlefield fans. Recently the EA communications director controversially responded to Battlefield 2042 fan backlash, but this was just the latest instance of poor communication.
DICE has been strangely quiet since the game came out and fans feel like the developer hasn’t been listening to them. This makes some players think that this could be the beginning of the end for the Battlefield series.
However, it isn’t all doom and gloom. While Battlefield V is now more popular on Steam than Battlefield 2042, this is actually good news for the series. This is because it shows that players still love the Battlefield games, but are just disappointed with 2042.
Hopefully, EA and DICE see this and recognize the huge potential the series has still. Otherwise, Battlefield 2042 could truly be the death of the series unless it makes a miraculous comeback.
In other news, Battlefield fans think that Battlefield 2042 needs to go free-to-play. This could be the only way to save the game at this point.
