During the promotion of the game, EA bragged a lot about the ability to Battlefield 2042
In the official update patch notes for version 4.1 of Battlefield 2042those responsible say they noticed that the value and impact of each player and squad was reduced due to the intensity and chaos of combat in Breakthrough mode. They decided that 64-player games offered a more tactical and less chaotic experience, so they left these lobbies. They also reduced the number of combat vehicles.
From now on, when you play Breakthrough, you will notice that the Hourglass, Rupture, and Renewal maps will only be available in their “small” versions. The Debris, Manifest, Orbital, and Kaleidoscope maps will still be available in their “large” versions, but with reduced player counts.
128-player lobbies will still be available for the Conquest game mode.
