On Steam, the latest installment in the series even found itself on the bottom of the list for most played games. The concurrent player number has also come down rapidly. It is a tough situation, to say the least, for Battlefield 2042.

If DICE wants to save itself from more criticism, then it needs to come up with a solid remedy as soon as possible. Otherwise, Battlefield 2042 won’t take long to turn into the biggest disappointment of last year..

BF2042 is currently available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, and PC.
