When asking, why was Battlefield even worse than Cyberpunk, we could point to a number of problems: the Specialists, the weapons, or even the lack of a campaign. But we can all agree BF2042 was terrible. Nobody argues with this point anymore. The more important question to ask is obvious: will fans want to buy another Battlefield game, or have they lost too much faith in EA.
The guys behind Battlefield are going to have at least one more go at making a successful game. They think fans can be won back. And while we don't have many specifics about the next Battlefield game, we do already have a release window.
Next Battlefield Game Gets Release Date Window
According to an industry insider, the next Battlefield game will be released at some point in 2024. This leak comes from the Battlefield leaker, Tom Henderson. Here's precisely what he had to say:
If this is true, then that's obviously exciting for fans. Sure, Battlefield 2042 might have been terrible, but there's a great Battlefield game just waiting to be made. They just need to remember to go back to what people loved about the series, rather than striving for meaningless innovation.
But is Tom Henderson to be trusted anymore? He spoke about Battlefield as though it were going to kill Call of Duty and be the Game of the Year. He couldn't have been more wrong. But that said, he was telling the truth about a number of features, he just hyped them up too much. So perhaps it's wise to listen to Tom Henderson, but take everything he says with a very large grain of salt.
We'll keep you posted when we get more info about the next Battlefield game. Until then, why not play the new BR everyone's talking about?
