Why Did Battlefield 2042 Fail?

There is no one who loves the FPS genre and does not know the Battlefield series. It must be admitted that it is an ambitious series. The last game of the series that has been going on for years is Battlefield 2042 .

The last game was also released with great hopes and was expected to make a splash. Yes, the game made a splash, but it made a splash in the opposite direction. Even Battlefield fans didn’t like the game. Company officials also said that they were aware of this issue.

So why did the game fail? According to new allegations, EA held a special meeting to discuss this issue.

What’s the Key to Failure for Battlefield 2042?

It is said that the reasons for the failure of the game were discussed in the meeting, which was allegedly held in private. According to the opinions of the developer team, there are 3 important reasons for the failure.

The most important of these is the update of the Frostbite software used as the game engine .

The team has done a study and prepared the game to a large extent. The subsequent update to the game engine changed things completely. Although certain places in the game changed after the update, this of course caused an incompatibility. At least that’s what the allegations are.

Consider how much of an impact a later update could have on the game, which has a huge footprint. Things can turn around in an instant.

The second reason is given as the pandemic. During the pandemic, working in the office was disrupted. Of course, EA was impressed by this. Working from home is not always as easy as it seems.

There may be additional difficulties in motivation, work follow-up and order. It’s harder to work from home, especially if you’re developing a game and that game is Battlefield 2042 . Because this is teamwork. Naturally, it is said that there are disconnections in the team and this situation has a negative impact on the game.

The last reason seemed a bit ridiculous to me. The third reason that was claimed to be discussed at the meeting was given as Halo Infinite. I no longer know what impact Halo’s untimely launch had.

These are the reasons discussed at the meeting. Yes, these reasons may be valid reasons. The game may have also failed. But if you ask me, both EA Games and the Battlefield series have the credit to overcome this error. I think the company is being overdone.


After countless successful Battlefield series, the disappointment of Battlefield 2042  will not hurt the series. In my opinion, on the contrary, it may cause the company to explode with its new game. They will want to make people forget what happened during the production of 2042.
