Battlefield 2042 has already lost more than half of its active players on Steam


Despite the mixed reaction from the public, according to data from EA, the launch of Battlefield 2042 attracted almost double the number of players as Battlefield V. More than 100,000 players have played in Battlefield 2042 on Steam, according to statistics on the Steam Charts. However, over the past week, the number of players has plummeted. The 24-hour peak is now just over 52K, nearly 50 percent lower than the all-time high of 100K that was set shortly after the game launched. Of course, this is far from a catastrophic situation for the game, as not everyone on PC purchased Battlefield 2042 through Steam. The game is also available on EA Origin and the Epic Games Store, but it is likely that Steam is ahead of them in terms of the number of copies sold.

Even if the number of PC players drops to a low level, crossplay will still allow players to fight against players on the PlayStation and Xbox consoles. One thing that may worry EA and DICE is the overall negative perception of the game, but this is entirely their fault for releasing such an unfinished game. It is likely that Battlefield 2042 will manage to retain a large number of players over time if EA and DICE start rolling out more updates.

Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that returns the series to legendary epic action. In a chaotic future, adapt and thrive on ever-changing battlefields with your squad and arsenal of the latest technology.
