Talking about Battlefield 2042 is now like shooting the Red Cross. After talking about the refunds granted by Steam, even exceeding the normal figures to request it, it seems that the latest FPS DICE is slowly depopulating, approaching its numbers to Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V, released respectively in 2016 and 2018.
The journalist Tom Henderson pointed out the trend, publishing the Steam Charts extract on Twitter, with the data relating to the active players of the three titles. Therefore, the three big updates were not enough to raise the situation mentioned above, with players who seem to wait for better times, especially considering DICE’s plans for Season 1 and the new Exposure map.
However, the numbers may vary from moment to moment, and only Steam is taken as a reference, but all of this is very indicative. If the new expansion does not improve the performance, we will face an epochal thud.
