Battlefield 2042 has had a rough development so far – here are all of the indications that the game has been in trouble for quite a long time now!
It’s no doubt that Battlefield 2042 is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year so far, but it is also one of the most ambitious. However, ambition doesn’t mean smooth development.
Plenty of smaller games have suffered from development disruptions, especially during the global pandemic. Therefore, it’s no surprise that it has been difficult for Battlefield 2042 studio DICE.
Here is a brief timeline of the Battlefield 2042 development issues leading up to the problem-riddled Battlefield 2042 Beta.
Battlefield 2042 Development Problems Timeline
Keeping Fans Waiting Too Long For A Reveal
Fans first heard official news about the new Battlefield game all the way back in April. However, this included no information about the game, not even the title.
Players had to wait almost two months for the reveal. This didn’t go down well, especially after the infamous “June. Soon.” tweet from Battlefield.
Disappointing Gameplay Reveal
Following the stunning Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer, players were eagerly awaiting the first gameplay. It arrived just a couple of days later, but was just some brief snippets of gameplay put together.
This left players disappointed and they wondered why EA didn’t share extended gameplay. This was the first point where people began to worry about the development of Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield Alpha Test Delayed
The next major sign that the development of Battlefield 2042 was in trouble was the delay for the Alpha test of the game.
Battlefield 2042 Release Date Delayed
Next came the Battlefield 2042 development news that nobody wanted. On September 15, EA confirmed the Battlefield 2042 delay, alongside a new release date.
Just a few days later, EA announced the new Battlefield 2042 beta release date too. Players thought that this extra time would help DICE polish the game, but the beta was still pretty rough.
Battlefield 2042 Beta Had Major Issues
Players hopping into the Beta had a host of issues and the game was lacking a lot of polish.
While DICE has already made a list of confirmed improvements for the Battlefield 2042 launch build, this may not be enough to win back many disillusioned players. Is there really enough time between now and the launch for DICE to iron out all of these problems?
Let’s hope that there are no more major disruptions to the development of Battlefield 2042.
Plus, it looks like DICE will finally reveal Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone game mode soon. This is the last major information we are waiting to find out about.
