Due to the lack of any real news about the future Battlefield 2042, and a desire to keep their anger burning, some in the gaming community have started harassing EA customer support agents.
In a now-deleted thread on the Battlefield 2042 subreddit, one player posted a screenshot of a conversation they had with an EA support representative. Typically, these people help with refund requests, tech support issues, and any other issues players may have with the game. Of course, their job isn’t to convey the community’s sentiment about the game to EA.
However, that’s exactly what happened here. Given the overwhelmingly negative sentiment on the Battlefield 2042 subreddit, this little gimmick was most likely meant to earn Reddit users some internet points before the post was deleted — it already had.
So far, DICE’s first and only communication in the new year hasn’t provided any information on what players can expect from the game going forward. Battlefield 2042 did receive a small new patch, along with some Portal XP revenue adjustments, and promises a major update later this month.
However, DICE has been dubiously silent on any specific changes to future content or future design directions, leading many to believe the leaked season one start date was accurate.
EA’s earnings call is due later today, and the publisher is expected to make some comments on Battlefield 2042 and its performance. However, it’s best to keep your expectations in check, as these types of phones often offer vague language and no real details. Nonetheless, reports suggest that EA may want to play some components of Battlefield 2042 for free, so we could hear a little bit about that on the conference call.
