Battlefield 2042 officially launched on Friday and it has been a rather rocky start for the beloved franchise. Despite having seemingly millions of players already, the game has been widely criticized and is now one of the lowest rated major releases on Steam. Today, the team at DICE provided an in-depth update on their plans in the coming weeks including tuning, stability, progression, and more.
There’s an awful lot to cover in the full update which you can find here. So we recommend visiting that site for the full breakdown. Below you can find the formal statement offered today and the plan for future updates.
We couldn’t be more passionate about this game and will be supporting and evolving it for years to come. We have confirmed at least two major game updates in the coming weeks, and we’ll be here communicating consistently about the changes we are making, as well as new content coming to Battlefield 2042.The teams across the globe are working 24/7 to evolve and deliver improvements to the game. Since launch we’ve made a number of service updates that have improved server performance as well as the vaulting and restoration of content not performing in line with our designs.
We also want to give you the assurance that we’re carefully evaluating your desire to see legacy features return. End-of-match Scoreboard, Server Browser, and features like Voice Chat are big topics for us to cover all at once, and we have plenty we want to say around them. We’ll come back to you when we have things that we can show to you, including details about our long-term vision for certain features and functions.
Now, let’s focus on what is coming. We’ll be delivering Update #2 for the game on Thursday, November 25, followed by a further, substantial Update #3 in early December. We are also working on another update that we are looking to deploy in advance of the Holidays too. In addition to the updates that are coming, we’ll also be sharing more about Season 1 in early 2022.
