Battlefield 2042 players complained that the game had many bugs and sustained game balance difficulties during the early days of its release.
Recently, a player on change.org opened a petition that directed EA to open up refunds to players who bought Battlefield 2042. The petition says that the EA’s release of Battlefield 2042 mocks every player who spent $70 on the game. The petition accused EA of false advertisements, which cost players millions of dollars, to the dismay of thousands of players globally.
Furthermore, on the condition that the petition receives over 50,000 signings, EA would receive a lawsuit from top-rated lawyers who have shown interest in the petition.
As of the time of this post, the petition has crossed 50,000 signatures and is poised to reach the 75,000 mark.
Speaking about the complaints, Tom Henderson, who had worked on EA Sports Football Titles, communicated that the EA was disappointed in the poor performance of Battlefield 2042. According to him, a plug-in developer had issued a notice on the effects of multiple bugs on the game’s performance. Consequently, the plug-in developers reportedly stopped sending plug-in updates to the game and “recommended” lifetime subscribers to turn to “Call of Duty.”
EA reportedly plans to make some aspects of Battlefield 2042 free-to-play to salvage the situation. While the game’s developers continue improving its technicalities, it still shows a lack of content compared to previous games.
In a recent video where Henderson spoke concerning the state of DICE, Henderson says that EA wants to make one component free. Although, at the moment, it isn’t clear what part would qualify between Hazard Zone or Portal. The latter is more likely because of the low amounts of daily players on Hazard Zone.
