However, this phrasing may understate the number of complaints. On Steam, the game received “Mostly Negative” ratings. Players complained about many of its unpopular changes.
These include swapping Battlefield’s Class system to 2042’s Specialists. Other complaints include fewer standard modes, fewer maps, and fewer gadgets and guns. This is only a sample of fans’ many complaints about the game.
EA isn’t ready to abandon Battlefield yet, with significant updates planned by DICE. The studio responds to criticisms of Battlefield2042. It sounds like there is a lot more work ahead for the developers.
Battlefield2042 was not the only topic discussed at EA’s conference. In contrast to DICE, Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends continues its colossal success.

EA also discussed its general plans and future expectations for the coming years during the conference call. EA is planning several new EA Sports titles.
Skate, Dead Space, and Need for Speed will be discussed more. Fans have plenty to look forward to in the upcoming installments of their favorite franchises.
