We Have Played The Worst Sonic The Hedgehog Games.
You might be wondering what the situation is for Battlefield2042. Publisher EA recently announced that it will permanently remove a mode from PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Since its launch late last year, the much-maligned multiplayer shooter is having a difficult time. It’s evident that Battlefield 2042 has not been the success that DICE and EA hoped it would be.
EA has announced that it will remove Battlefield2042‘s 128-player Breakthrough mode on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Computer. The mode will now support 64 players.
EA explained that it had reviewed the All-Out Warfare experiences and concluded that the 128 player mode was better suited to Conquest, where the gameplay spaces are bigger and where there is more opportunity for sandbox gameplay.
EA stated that 128 players were too many to support Breakthrough and that individual players’ contributions felt diminished due to the chaos that can be seen on one map.
EA stated that squads in Breakthrough 64 now have more opportunities to work together. They can flank the enemy, place a spawn beacon, attach suppressors using their plus menu, then clear the area and hold a point. This is one squad helping to turn the tide.
According to a recent report by Tom Henderson, a Battlefield insider for WhatIfGaming, EA already plans to release the next installment in the Battlefield franchise in 2024. This may be the right decision considering the lack of impact Battlefield 4042 has had on players.
