Today, EA’s late 2021 ace, Battlefield 2042, was squeezed out of the US Xbox 50 Most Popular Games list less than two months after its release. In addition to the US server list, Battlefield 2024 has also dropped to 44th on the list of most popular games in the UK, which is a fairly low ranking compared to other titles in the series.

On the PC side, the online peak of “Battlefield 2042” on Steam last week was only 8,000, which is significantly different from the 100,590 at the time of release. In addition, this figure is already lower than that of games such as Star Wars: Battlefront and For Honor that have been released for several years.
This means that this game, which was once highly expected by EA, has almost officially declared a failure. Some time ago, it was reported that a plug-in developer officially announced that it would abandon the development of the plug-in for Battlefield 2042, because many performance problems of the game affected the operation of the plug-in, and a large number of users were lost, so it was not worth continuing to maintain.
At present, EA has begun to consider turning Battlefield 2042 into a free-to-play game Continuation, and in overseas physical stores, the game even has a big sale of $4.99 (original price $69.99).
