After the failed launch fiasco of Battlefield 2042, thousands of players have decided to band together to get a full refund for the game, across multiple platforms. As of this writing, the petition has exceeded 30,000 signatures.
If you follow video game news, you probably know that Battlefield 2042 is one of the biggest disappointments of the end of 2021. IndeedDICE’s latest FPS has greatly disappointed the communitythe fault of bugs galore, a balancing of weapons and vehicles to be completely reviewed, and the absence of key features of the license such as local voice chat or the traditional scoreboard.
Very quickly, the attendance of the game collapsed, going from 100,000 players during its first weekend to less than 6,000 players during the last 30 days. A catastrophic situation that pushes the publisher of the title EA to consider making certain game modes free, in the hope of attracting more hesitant players. And for the bravest who continue to play the game, it will take a lot of patience.
Indeed, EA and DICE recently announced the postponement of the 1st season of Battlefield 2042 to summer 2022. In other words, no new content on the game before the summer period. Terrible news that put the final blow to the last opus of the saga.
