DICE has delayed the first seasonal content drop for Battlefield 2042 in order to get the game up to standard. The shooter, which launched back in November hasn’t done too well and players have since jumped ship. Those who still play Battlefield 2042 are screaming for help as the game’s UI, scoreboard and other features either don’t exist or don’t work properly.
DICE announced in December last year that the first season of content, which was meant to release by the end of March 2022, would release in early 2022. However, the developer has now delayed this season until later in the year.
The developer claims to be listening to player feedback on the UI, squad dynamics, specialists and other broken and missing features. In order to make the game more enjoyable, they won’t release the first season of Battlefield 2042 until at least autumn.
I don’t know how DICE is going to fix some of the game’s biggest issues. The maps, for example, are horribly dull, too big and have very little cover. Other features like the lack of squad dynamics and boring specialists need some real work before these features are somewhat usable. Let us not forget that the general UI is also shallow and dull. You can make an entire wall of issues in Battlefield 2042 at this stage.
Thankfully, EA and DICE have some veterans who joined the team in order to help with the project. Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella is now part of the game’s production so hopefully, things get better over the next few months.
DICE shared the news of the delay on Twitter while also detailing the first batch of issues they are tackling in Battlefield 2042. They then followed up by announcing a Steadfast Exclusive Legendary Bundle for the game that is available for all Gold and Ultimate Edition owners. Yes, they delayed content for their crappy mess of a shooter and then pushed people to buy it with a bundle offer….. You can’t make this stuff up.
Today we’re sharing the latest #Battlefield 2042 details, our new player feedback loop, and a status update for Season One.
