Battlefield as a series is used to having awful debuts at this point, but never before in its history has it suffered through a launch as disastrous as the one for Battlefield 2042 toward the end of last year. When the multiplayer shooter first came out, it received a lot of negative feedback from users, and DICE’s lack of communication and inconsistent support in terms of bug updates and new content since then have done nothing to change that.
However, the first season of Battlefield 2042 is finally going to arrive in early June, and while we have some brief details on what it’ll bring – such as the closure of Hazard Zone, the beginning of the process of fixing existing maps, and the addition of a new map – full details on what the season will entail have not yet been shared with the public. However, we have some brief details on what it’ll bring, such as the closure of Hazard Zone, and the beginning of the process of fixing existing maps, When exactly should we anticipate having that available to us?
According to a rumor that was written by notable industry insider Tom Henderson and published on Try Hard Guides, the reveal for Battlefield 2042’s season 1 would occur on or around June 8 at the very latest. Henderson claims that reviews and sneak peeks of the new seasonal content will be released by a variety of media outlets and influencers on June 8. In addition, a new trailer for the season will arrive sometime before that date, possibly on June 7 though there is no concrete information regarding this matter. No matter what happens, on June 8 we will have more information about the first season of whatever it is.
Henderson also claims that the new content that is going to be arriving with season 1, which is already launching an entire half year later than it was originally supposed to, has been “scaled back massively.” This is not only so that DICE can focus on fixing core issues in the game, but also because the studio is also working on the next Battlefield game.
According to Henderson, the premiere of the first season is anticipated to take place within the next few of weeks. In the meantime, make sure to check back for further updates.
