Sixty-six days have passed since the release of Battlefield 2042. Industry news reports that the game may soon switch to a free-to-play distribution model. As improbable as this scenario seems, the rumors about it alone are irrefutable proof of the failure of the new shooter from EA DICE.
Especially in the eyes of players, because while some reviewers appreciated the advantages of this production, the fans are almost exclusively critical. If you have any doubts about it, take a look at the infographic we have prepared - it lets you appreciate the extent of criticism that falls on BF 2042.
The landscape after defeat is completed by the departure of Fawzi Mesmar, the project's boss - exactly one week after the game's debut. The closing of the Battlefield 2042 thread on Reddit was also widely reported and discussed by the community. And did you know that the official YouTube channel of the franchise lacks the launch trailer of the latest installment?
Surprising? Not really - EA DICE employees have long realized that BF 2042 will turn out a dud. The studio was supposed to be mismanaged and production team leaders deaf to constructive criticism. It seems that, once again, the surreal prospects of monetizing everything that moves blinded the decision makers, obscuring the real state of the product.
