I assume they’re attempting one thing new

Earlier this week, Dice introduced that they had been delaying Battlefield 2042’s first season with the intention to concentrate on “extensive fixes to the game.” One of these fixes had been adjustments to the sport’s scoreboard due in late February, however at present the event group introduced these had slipped into early March as a substitute.

“Our next Update after todays Hotfix will now roll out in early March. This is a change from our last messaging to you all on it’s intended release,” mentioned a tweet. “The extra time will help to ensure we improve the quality of our Updates, and include additional changes.”

Dice initially introduced the supposed launch date and confirmed off the scoreboard adjustments again in January. Those adjustments embody: making the scoreboard truly present scores. A daring alternative.

Other sweeping adjustments are incoming to the ailing FPS, together with higher participant profiles, map format adjustments and voice comms. The lack or inadequacy of a few of these options are why Ed wrote in his Battlefield 2042 evaluate that the sport “doesn’t seem ready yet.”

While the introduction of bigger adjustments has been pushed again to March, Dice have been patching the sport to repair bugs. The information of this launch date delay got here alongside information of recent hotfix deployed at present to “address areas of game instability that we’ve noticed after the release of Update #3.2,” mentioned one other tweet.

As I mentioned final time, it is good that Dice stay dedicated to bettering the sport, but it surely appears like an enormous job. Particularly if you have a look at the downward stress of these 70% of Steam opinions that are unfavorable.
