Earlier this year, Infinity Ward founder, Vince Zampella, opened up about what he thinks went wrong with Battlefield 2042 (opens up in brand-new tab). Zampella – that currently directs Apex Legends’ programmer Respawn – recommended DICE had “strayed a little too far” from Battlefield’s initial plan, as well as neglected “what makes that fun”.
“I think they just strayed a little too far from what Battlefield is,” Zampella claimed at the time. “They tried to do a couple of things that were maybe ambitious: grow the player count etc. I don’t think they spent enough time iterating on what makes that fun.
“It’s not naturally a poor suggestion,” he added. “The method they were established as well as the method they performed simply didn’t enable them to locate the very best point feasible.”
Back in February, EA acknowledged Battlefield 2042’s lackluster launch
There’s been plenty of talk from consumers and developers alike on Battlefield 2042 since its launch. A refund petition gained over 100,000 signatures (opens in new tab) earlier this year, and a former Battlefield 3 lead revealed he was “astonished (opens up in brand-new tab)” by the “mistakes” of the new game.
Nonetheless, EA has confirmed that it is “fully committed (opens up in brand-new tab)” to improving Battlefield 2042 with new updates over the coming months and DICE is seemingly attempting to rescue the troubled title by introducing some sweeping changes, most notably the return of classes.
