Battlefield 2042 has to be one of the biggest and most high profile disappointments in recent years, though given the series it’s attached to, there’s no surprise that it’s a game that still generates some interest. If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not it’s worth diving into given its many well-documented issues, there’s good news for you.
EA and DICE have announced that Battlefield 2042 is coming to EA Play- and, by extension, to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes EA Play. Following the launch of the shooter’s Season 3 sometime in December, the game will become available via EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. A specific date for the same hasn’t yet been announced, but presumably, those details will be arriving in the next couple of weeks.
Battlefield 2042’s post-launch support has left a lot to be desired in the eyes of most series fans, compounding the many significant issues the game already had at launch. But while it doesn’t look like the shooter is going to be able to make the kind of recovery that fans might have hoped for, the future of the series in general is looking intriguing.
While DICE continues to focus on Battlefield’s multiplayer offerings, the newly-established Ridgeline Games is working on the next Battlefield’s single player campaign, while Ripple Effect Studio – the developer of Battlefield 2042’s Portal mode – is working on “an entirely new Battlefield experience.”
