There has always been huge rivalry between the Battlefield franchise and Call of Duty, with the series being one of its biggest competitors. Since the release of Battlefield 2042 last year, it has been met with mixed reviews from fans with the majority reporting a number of problems with it, the game now sits with mostly negative reviews.
Now, it looks like EA has considered the game somewhat of a failure and are even thinking about making the game free-to-pay in some way.
Well known leaker Tom Henderson recently took to Twitter to share this news with fans, the post read “EA is reportedly very disappointed with how Battlefield 2042 has performed and is “looking at all the options” when it comes to the title, this is including looking at Free to Play in some capacity. I’ll have more on this tomorrow.”
The post claims that the team are now “looking at all the options” when it comes to Battlefield 2042, Henderson also explained that these options could may well be turning the game free-to-play.
However, it is unclear if this means that the whole game will be free-to-play or if it will be just specific elements in the game, although Henderson did say he would follow up with more details the following day.
After all the game has faced a number of technical issues since launch along with a series of other issues reported by players. The feedback from the community has been mainly negative, which has not gotten the game off to the best start which has lead the team into talks about potentially making some changes.
Of course, we must take this information with a pinch of salt as nothing has yet been officially confirmed, it looks like we will have to wait this one out and see what is in store for the future.
Either way, it will be interesting to see what further information Henderson has for us this week, whether or not it proves to be correct is another story.
