Despite the negative press, Battlefield 2042 has millions of players

Battlefield 2042 wowed fans of the game with its first trailer, which was packed with fan service and fast-paced combat. However, the excitement did not last long, and the shooter was swiftly panned due to several design decisions and a debut that was riddled with technical and balancing issues. Despite this, it appears that it performed reasonably well in sales.

DICE commended the community for their support in a message on its official site, confirming that the futuristic shooter already has millions of gamers just days after its global premiere. Similarly, he said that it already has nearly twice as many users as Battlefield V did when it first launched in 2018.

It's worth remembering that Battlefield V only sold 7.3 million units in its first two months on the market, falling short of Electronic Arts' forecasts. As a result, it's feasible that Battlefield 2042 will sell as many or more units in a similar amount of time.

Of course, as the GameSpot portal explains, there's a chance that among DICE's millions of gamers are people who were able to play the game owing to EA Play Pro and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate promotions. It's impossible to say how many people bought the game at this stage.


DICE is obviously aware of the numerous faults that jeopardize the Battlefield 2042 experience.

The study confirmed in the same publication that an update will be released on November 25 that will address a number of issues, including the hovercraft, an error that prevents colleagues from being revived, and the erratic and inconsistent dispersion of bullets, which makes the use of certain weapons a martyrdom.

DICE, on the other hand, has stated that a third patch will be released in early December to address performance issues, interface errors, vehicle animations, and other issues. The upgrade, which has yet to be given a release date, is expected to be the most significant yet.

Finally, the studio reaffirmed its commitment to the project and promised that teams would continue to listen to feedback from players.
