DICE has confirmed that there will definitely not be compatibility with the above devices at launch, but they plan to make them available in Battlefield 2042 in the future.
Battlefield 2042 is just around the corner. So, as the launch approaches, we’re learning more and more about the launch details. The announcement of Electronic Arts’ war shooter was well received, perhaps because it set the future as the battlegrounds. The near future, that is.
DICE aimed to give its players a great combat experience after the recently mixed reception to games in the series. Even the biggest fans weren’t happy with them. It’s precisely because of the community that Battlefield 2042 is being made available for PC and console play. However, crossing servers in this way has created new problems, so the studio has decided not to allow mouse and keyboard use on consoles, Xbox and PlayStation for the time being.
This seems to have been confirmed by some Steam descriptions, which show that some players have already complained about this. So DICE will not allow this kind of control at launch next month but is working on a positive solution for everyone in the future.
It seems logical that the developer is concerned, in addition to online toxicity, the balance of its multiplayer, this is an issue also to take into account with this game. We’ll see for ourselves on November 19, the day on which Battlefield 2042 will land on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.
