A petition demanding EA to offer refunds on every copy of Battlefield 2042 sold has now gained twenty times as many signatures as the people still playing the game. Oof.
Battlefield 2042 broke the previous record for biggest let-down in gaming when it launched. From the Specialists controversy, to Hazard Zone, and everything in between, this game felt unfinished and boring (at best). And with news that the game is looking to become an Overwatch-style Battle Royale, fans aren't holding their breath for things to improve. So they're making a stand. No-longer will gamers allow EA to keep behaving the way it does – it's time for a class-action lawsuit. It all begins with a petition, and you can add your signature today.
The Refund Petition To EA
The petition, available to sign here, demands that EA offer a full refund to every customer who purchased Battlefield 2042. Right now, February 9, there are 80,000 signatures on the petition, which is twenty times as many people as there wereplaying the game on Steam today. Here's the reasoning behind the petition:
Battlefield 2042 has cost consumers millions of dollars in damages and upset thousands of customers worldwide.
According to many consumer reports, Electronic Arts and DICE did not keep many promises made at launch, and Battlefield 2042 was launched as unplayable. Even today, Battlefield 2042 has bugs that drastically change the in-game experience so much that it’s deemed an unfinished release by many community members.
And in all honesty, as sad as this game has been to cover, we have to agree with the petitioners. It wasn't just bad. It was terrible, and unfinished, and showed a contempt for legacy fans.
Whether you'll go so far as to join the petition yourself is for you to decide, but maybe we can soften the blow with some fantastic news about Hogwarts Legacy instead?
