Battlefield 2042 Season One delayed until the summer

Following fan outcry about fixes and issues in the game, DICE and EA have announced that Season One of Battlefield 2042 has been delayed until Summer 2022.

The update was due to come in March, but that has not been replaced by a smaller patch, with the full new season coming a few months later. You can see the full statement on the delay below:

Battlefield 2042 Season One Delayed

In a larger statement, DICE wrote: "We have heard you. So, we are heavily invested and committed to the future of Battlefield 2042 – working on taking action on multiple fronts to address feedback and implement extensive fixes to the game, key features that are important to you, and getting team play where it needs to be.

To help conter the disappointment of the delay, anyone who purchased the Gold or Ultimate Editions of Battlefield 2042 will be getting some additional free items. They will come in "an exclusive bundle containing a Specialist skin, weapon and vehicle skins, a melee weapon and Player Card, all to be delivered in the next update."

They continue to say: "When Season One arrives in early Summer, it will mark the start of a year where we’ll deliver four Seasons, four new Specialists, and new locations along with more completely new content."

March's Update

Before Season One's launch, another new update will come to Battlefield 2042, to fix some of the more glaring issues with the game. The highlights are:

  • SCOREBOARD - In our next update, we’ll be adding a refreshed in-round Scoreboard alongside further changes we’ve worked on since the holidays. This will be an ongoing evolution from what was shown in the work in progress we shared recently. We have heard your feedback around including two tables and separating your own team versus the enemy, and are working on incorporating that for the release. K/D scoring and End of Round reporting will also be coming in a future update.
  • ALL PLATFORM VOICE COMMUNICATION - The arrival of voice communication (VOIP) is just the start of the improvements we’re bringing to enhance team play and communications.
  • PLAYER PROFILE - Giving you a better overview of your career on the battlefield and how far you have to go for your next unlock.
