Recently, Electronic Arts (EA) has shown a strong commitment to revitalizing Battlefield 2042, a game that initially received a lukewarm reception. Despite its rocky start, the player base has remained consistent, even after the free-to-play weekend that propelled the game up the charts. This success has prompted EA to double down on their efforts to bring Battlefield 2042 back to life.
Battlefield 2042 has divided the gaming community, with some fans of the franchise avoiding it altogether. However, there are tens of thousands of players who have embraced the game and have no issues with it. While it may not be everyone's favorite Battlefield game, EA believes that Battlefield 2042 has the potential to make a realistic comeback. In a recent conference call, EA highlighted the positive response to Season 6 of Battlefield 2042, which has driven record engagement on Steam. This demonstrates the strength and long-term potential of the franchise. EA's teams are dedicated to supporting the passionate community of Battlefield fans while also working towards the future of the series.
There is still untapped potential in the Battlefield franchise. Since the release of Battlefield 1 in 2016, the community has experienced a decline. However, with the recent turnaround in Battlefield 2042, there is hope for a resurgence. Electronic Arts has plans to completely reimagine the Battlefield franchise and has enlisted the help of multiple studios to collaborate with DICE on future projects. This is an exciting prospect for die-hard Battlefield fans who long for the epic, action-packed games that rival Call of Duty. Only time will tell if Battlefield can reclaim its former glory, but the future looks promising.
