    Battlefield 2042 is the only project that DICE is working on, as the developer plans to become a "first-person shooter powerhouse" in the next three years, so don't expect to see another Mirror's Edge any time soon.

    Maybe you should release games when they are finished.

    They want to be n01 while doing everything they can to do the opposite. Sounds like more mismanagement.

    Dont know a single person that still plays this game.
    Agreed. The gameplay is almost unbearable to play now. Anyone who says this game holds up is clearly looking through rose tinted glassed

    I am one of those former 20 year fans they mention in the article, we would often buy multiple copies of BF so my son's and me could "squad up", BF1 was the last time we did that, BF5 was fun and again we all eventually got copies.

    I have never been much of an early adopter, to used to disappointing releases these days. This time it was not just the early bugs and lack of content, it was the whole change to the fantastic squad system that held me back from playing it and as of now I have still not purchased or even tried it, I follow the BF Facebook group and man oh man there is so much hate for the game. However the last posts had some of the most positive comments I have yet seen, so perhaps 8 months after release they are getting some of it right but too little too late?

    I used love the campaigns too, honestly I did even BF5 with the now must have obligatory woke female heroines.

    I don't see myself ever going back, at least not until they remove the COD elements and they go back to their roots... RIP BF, it was a fantastic ride until November 2021.

    Same here. Been playing since BF 2 modern combat on the PS2. I tried so hard to give this game a chance but dice isn't the same dev anymore. I can't even finish the game because it's such snooze fest.

    Exactly. You're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Dying Light 2 took years and was delayed numerous times and still launched with bugs and glitches. Games nowadays just can't launch flawlessly. And I'm usually okay with that, delay as long as you need to in my opinion. But I also will support games I want to Day One because I'm happy to play despite flaws. Most people are not.

    Horrendous, isn't it? Remember Cyberpunk? People never learn.

    Problem is, they can fix every single bug in the game but it won't save it for one simple reason: It still isn't Battlefield.
    The feel of the movement, the gunplay, the whole specialist system, the lack of destruction, the visuals of the maps, the atmosphere, there are so many awful design choices with the game that no amount of bug fixing or patches can save.
    Even Battlefield Hardline was more of a BF game than 2042 is.

    We’re putting all our energy into this game that no one plays….that’s serious commitment to failure.

    Also: You are able to be annoyed at delays and still want games released to work properly. 🤷‍♂️

    Sad to hear the status of Mirrors Edge. Catalyst was super fun and I still look forward to another entry to the series.

    I don't play BF at all, but Vince Z was great at Respawn, I wish him the best and hope he's able to help right the ship.

    Played a few games yesterday just to grind the achievements and the not a single time did the graphics render all the way. It looked like a polygon nightmare. And the framerate, nonexistent. This game is an absolute joke.

    The issue with that is more that they should stop announcing games so far in advance in the first place. Delays are fine, but maybe just don't announce the game 4 years out.
