Fans have been excited to finally get their hands on the upcoming first-person shooter since it was unveiled earlier this year, but the closer we get to release the more people seem to agree it might not be ready.
Take a look at Battlefield 2042 in action below!
If you've been paying attention, you'll know that Battlefield 2042 was supposed to release on October 22, just over a week from now. In September, DICE and EA announced that the game would be delayed to November 19 to allow for some extra time to polish certain aspects up and deliver on the team's vision.
This obviously caused some concern, but the news was mostly met with support from fans who have learned the hard way that it's clearly better to delay a game when needed. However, following some truly disastrous feedback from Battlefield 2042's recent open beta, fans are now calling for yet another delay.
Social media has been flooded with complaints over matchmaking problems, visual glitches, and severe lag. Beta tests are never going to be perfect, obviously, but players were left questioning whether or not the game really going to be ready by November 19.
Not long after, Battlefield insider Tom Henderson published a report for Gaming Intel that painted a pretty bleak picture of Battlefield 2042's development. All of this has led to the community widely agreeing that it would better to keep the game in the oven for a little longer if that's what it takes to get it right.
"I know I could be downvoted for this, but as a big BF fan the beta felt so distant from the other games," wrote on user on the Battlefield 2042 subreddit. "I really, really hope DICE takes the feedback from players because right now the game is less than a month away and this thing needs at least six months more minimum."
"The thing that makes this one different as well is that the core game mechanics and sheer amount of missing features really stand out," agreed another. "If this game gets pushed back six months or even longer I'd be okay with that. BF players deserve better at launch."
Sadly, most of the fans also seem to concur that whether or not Battlefield 2042 gets delayed again is completely out of DICE's hands.
"We as veterans sadly know that the game will be released in a bad state like other titles in the franchise," recalled one user. "We are used to it and it shouldn't be like that. We deserve a game in fair condition. Stop using excuses like 'Battlefield 4 was in a bad state at release too and they fixed later'. So is gonna be like that in every Battlefield game? When are we gonna receive a decent game at release?"
We'll find out for sure what state Battlefield 2042 is in next month.
