Flagrant Battlefield Ripoff has More Players Than “Battlefield 2042.”
You know what? I don’t think we’ve ever seen a video game die faster than Battlefield2042. It’s only been out for a little over two months, and the player numbers are already dropping so much that even cheat designers are packing up and moving along because there aren’t enough people playing it. Players have been flooding back to the older games of the series, and I’m not surprised.
According to Steam Charts data, a low-poly Indie game that Battlefield heavily influenced recently outnumbered Battlefield 2042 in terms of Steam’s concurrent players. This is probably all you need to know to understand the current state of this game, which was expected to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2021.

Tom Henderson was the first to be noticed, a well-known leaker and industry insider. He tweeted earlier this week: “If Battlebit Remastered is not something you have tried yet, it’s worth it. The Battlefield community seems to love it.” It passed more concurrent players than Battlefield2042.
BattleBit is an early-access game that you can download on Steam. It is described as a “low-poly FPS with a large multiplayer component.” It’s a bit like Roblox avatars. While it isn’t the most beautiful look, it’s still intentional.
Although the Steam numbers only represent a portion of Battlefield2042‘s user base due to all console users, it is still indicative of the state of the game in case a small indie can easily surpass its concurrent player counts. It has been suggested that 2042 might be offering free-to-play to counter its terrible reception. But we’ll have to wait to see.
