Being a AAA title, Battlefield 2042 was obviously a high-budget product. In fact, fans had to pay a premium price to be able to access the open beta. As a result, many players couldn’t even access the game due to issues engulfing the servers. In other instances, fans faced major bugs in-game, some of which rendered the title totally unplayable. Many players weren’t even happy with the game’s design.

Season 1 of Battlefield 2042 was supposed to release 6 months back but was reportedly postponed indefinitely. The officials wanted to address all the player complaints and fix the immediate and major concerns. Even though EA is reportedly all set to reveal the first post-launch season for the game, many still doubt the company’s ability to fix such a mess.

On top of that, EA chose an already eventful week to reveal new content for a patched-up game. With the Summer Game Fest 2022 and an almost-confirmed Call of Duty Modern Warfare II reveal knocking at our doors, most gamers will probably not take a second look at Battlefield 2042’s state next week. 

It will certainly be interesting to see how EA and Dice tackled their mess in the name of Battlefield 2042. If the speculations are indeed correct, we may get to see Season 1 launch by June 16.
