Battlefield 2042: community receives news regarding player count

Tom Henderson is a long-time leaker associated with shooter titles. He has time and again leaked accurate and reliable information regarding shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield in the past. And his working with IGN and the Video Game Chronicle only seems to increase his credibility.

Through a Tweet, he revealed that the game’s free multiplayer weekend on Steam has done very healthily for the title.


Adding on, he further revealed statistics that look favorable for this iconic shooter.

This type of news is definitely uplifting for the community since from the preference of hero-shooter-like operators over regular soldiers to the game’s bugs, the devs have not been making the right decisions.

The game will not receive further fixes all the way up until March next year. The game premiered along with its competitors such as Halo and Call of Duty. If the studio did not intend to fix the game up until March, DICE could have capitalized and released the title in March itself.

Battlefield 2042 received a very poor score on Metacritic. And to add salt to the wound, the active player count of the latest iteration of this iconic series was trumped by the likes of Farming Simulator. But, thankfully, the free weekend saw an increase in the player count, which is reassuring.
