Battlefield 2042 season one delayed for “extensive fixes”

The core needs to be improved before it can be added upon.

Battlefield 2042 season one has been delayed so that EA and DICE can “implement extensive fixes to the game,” it was today announced.

“We have heard you. So, we are heavily invested and committed to the future of Battlefield 2042 – working on taking action on multiple fronts to address feedback and implement extensive fixes to the game, key features that are important to you, and getting team play where it needs to be,” a blog post reads.

“We’ve had to make some big decisions to ensure that our next set of updates can be focused on delivering these improvements, with the most substantial one being to move the release date of our first Season to early Summer,” it continued. “This decision gives us the time to focus on improving the Battlefield 2042 experience while finalizing the development of our seasonal content to ensure that it all reaches our standard for quality.”

We weren’t too keen on the title when it first launched back in November 2021.

“In a world where developers are getting used to working from home and games are being pushed back due to the pandemic, EA decided that Battlefield 2042 was ready for this year,” Luke wrote in his review. “It’s not. More time is needed to fix a lot of the problems, but even then that might not be enough to save it from being one of the most lacklustre Battlefield titles yet.”

Since then, players have discovered more wrong with the title, including intangible buildings and a sniper rifle that can outperform an anti-tank weapon when it comes to blowing up tanks.

Battlefield 2042 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5.
