The Battlefield 2042 has been postponed until later this summer

The Battlefield 2042 Updates: The Battlefield 2042 technical playtest has been postponed until later this summer, according to a comprehensive briefing from EA and DICE. Dedicated Battlefield fans will have to wait a little longer to participate in the huge, 128-player multiplayer action, and they can blame it on crossplay.

Of course, this does not include the game’s expected open beta, which will likely arrive even closer to the full game’s release date due to its lack of a launch timeframe. The Battlefield 2042 technical playtest will differ from a typical beta test in a number of ways.

Only a few thousand people will be able to participate, and the test will only contain a small number of Battlefield 2042 maps, modes, and features. The test will let DICE better grasp the game’s capabilities and what changes need to be made before its October 22 release date.

Despite the high level of anticipation for Battlefield 2042, EA revealed in a long blog post that the technical playtest has been pushed back from July to “later this summer,” citing crossplay as the reason for the change. Because the game’s development teams are presently fine-tuning crossplay features, the technical playtest has been postponed to allow them to test Battlefield 2042 crossplay before the game’s release.

All About The Battlefield 2042


The playtest will let the teams “test some of our new features and functionality that we’re creating from the ground up for Battlefield 2042,” with just a few thousand people expected to attend. Only users with an updated EA Playtesting profile will be eligible for the test, which will focus on the game’s technical performance.

Though it’s unfortunate that many potential playtesters will have to wait longer to be involved, it may be a wise move in the long run. Crossplay will be a great way to kickstart the Battlefield 2042 community at launch, with a player base that spans consoles and platforms like never before in the franchise. Enabling crossplay during the technical playtest is the most effective approach to ensure that it works during the beta test and at launch.

EA anticipates Battlefield 2024 crossplay to operate across all platforms, including PC and consoles, following the technical playtest. In Battlefield 2042, EA and DICE claim they’re dedicated to giving gamers cross-progression and cross-commerce, as well as shared accounts across all platforms. This implies that gamers will be able to transport their in-game progress and any paid content across any devices on which they possess the game.

On October 22, 2021, Battlefield 2042 will be released on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
