It's safe to say Battlefield 2042 hasn't had the smoothest launch, even by franchise standards. As developer DICE continues to work on, let's admit, major issues in the post-launch period, the developer has had to delay its content roadmap.
Yep, season one for Battlefield 2042 will now arrive in "early Summer", rather than Spring. With how vague both of these launch windows have been, we wouldn't be surprised to see it slip deeper into Summer to be honest.
There are some updates coming before that though. The first one focuses on what the developer calls 'legacy' Battlefield features. Basically, they're adding a proper scoreboard, in-game voice chat options and deeper player profiles to 2042 "as soon as possible". Yep, even that release is still vague.
Thankfully, developer communication is set to improve. DICE says it's working on a new feedback loop with players, which involves the team presenting issues being worked on, then allowing community feedback before decisions are made on fixes, patches, and game updates.
If you happened to have picked up the Gold or Ultimate edition of Battlefield 2042, DICE is handing out a small freebie to thank you for your patience. It's not much, but it's something before larger content drops start arriving, hopefully, in early Summer. Here's the 'Steadfast Exclusive Legendary Bundle':
So, there you have it. DICE has finally spoken, rather conveniently, ahead of EA's upcoming financial results. While we're happy to see a developer update, it's all a bit vague for a AAA shooter that launched over two months ago and has seen no meaningful content since.
