Battlefield 2042: not beyond fix

It’s also not ideal that the game has managed to get such a bad rep within 3 days of its release. The game seemed to be full of promises when the secret mode, Portal, was revealed. Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out as expected.

With Rockstar’s GTA Definitive Edition not doing well either, these last couple of weeks haven’t been nice to gamers. But, it’s not like there’s no hope, as a lot of games are off to a rough start post-launch. And, more often than not, they manage to turn things around. Fans hope it’ll be the same with Battlefield 2042.

The devs are well aware of these bugs and glitches and have even released a patch. But, it’s just not quite enough, and the game still direly needs a fix.

The devs have updated the official website of Battlefield, where they have mentioned all the bugs/glitches. The devs are planning to release more updates in the days to come, and with that, they’ve inspired hope in the community that everything will be alright.
