Electronic Arts have confirmed that its open beta attracted such a large number of users, though fewer than Battlefield 1.
We have entered the month of November, and with it comes new installments of the industry’s leading war shooters. One of them is Battlefield 2042, which is only a couple of weeks away from release, although we can get early access to it with its early trial version.
And it looks like there’s an appetite for DICE’s new title, according to data provided by Electronic Arts and collected by Axios’ Stephen Totilo. The Battlefield 2042 beta has attracted 7.7 million players, including PC, PlayStation, and Xbox users. These numbers are striking considering that it was not the most solid, with visual bugs and hackers.
The numbers are very convincing considering how few days the beta was available, with early access for EA Play members and then released openly to the public. Of course, previous games such as Battlefield 1 had more users, a total of 13.2 million.
Be that as it may, it bodes well for Battlefield 2042, which arrives on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox X Series X|S on 19 November. DICE has promised to have taken note of the criticisms, and will try to make sure the game is polished and features the improvements expected on both the previous and current generations.
