Season 1 of “Battlefield 2042” is almost around the corner. Season 1 is set to premiere in “early June,” according to developer DICE.
After the 4.1 release on May 19, this will be “Battlefield 2042’s” next major upgrade. As the release date approaches, DICE will provide a “complete overview” and patch notes for Season 1.
DICE postponed the release of Season 1 in February of this year in order to focus on getting the game in decent shape after a less-than-stellar debut. “This decision allows us to focus on refining the Battlefield 2042 experience while also completing the production of our seasonal content to ensure that everything meets our high quality standards,” DICE noted at the time.
Season 1 will be the first of four seasons that will be released over the course of a year. Throughout the four seasons, players can expect four new Specialists, new terrain, and “more fully new stuff.”
“We’re dedicated to ensuring “Battlefield 2042″ lives up to our ambitions and your expectations—its a mission we’re committed to completing,” DICE added.
Despite its problems, “Battlefield 2042” was the fifth best-selling game in the United States in 2021, however, EA has not released an exact sales statistic. Despite “Battlefield 2042’s” difficulties, EA management recently stated that the Battlefield franchise is “very essential” to the corporation.
Despite the fact that “Battlefield 2042” didn’t sell as well as EA had hoped, the time in which it was released—Q3 EA’s 2021–was the most profitable in the company’s 40-year history. The Battlefield series accounts for roughly 10% of EA’s total revenue.
“Battlefield 2042” struggled in part because it was developed during COVID, according to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, who also stated that some of the game’s design choices did not resonate with players.
