In this episode of GameSpot News, Persia talks about the recent teases for Battlefield 2042’s new map, specialist, and more updates on the way.
Following 2042’s rocky launch, EA has announced a major shake-up at the company. DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson is leaving, with Rebecka Coutaz set to take over as the new GM. Meanwhile, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella will become the overall boss on the Battlefield franchise in addition to his current role. EA also indicated it’s looking to create a connected Battlefield universe, and both Ripple Effect and Halo veteran Marcus Lehto’s new studio will be working on Battlefield experiences, which may or may not be new games.
Later in the video, Persia also talks about what’s next for the game. That includes the launch of a new map and specialist, which will hit next year, as well as time-limited 64-player modes for PC and new-gen consoles. 2022 will also introduce the first live season of Battlefield 2042.
As far as today’s patch goes for Battlefield 2042, it brings with it more than 150 bug fixes, changes, and improvements across the game. As detailed by DICE, some of those changes include improved level geometry so that players don’t get stuck, the elimination of various visual glitches, fixes to spawning issues, and a whole lot more that you can read all about on gamespot.com.
