Things are clearly not going well at Battlefield 2042 DICE developer. According to new information from an insider, EA, the game’s publisher, seems to be exploring the free-to-play route.

It’s no secret that Battlefield 2042 wasn’t the hit EA expected. Although DICE continues to improve the technical state of the game with patches, is still lacking a lot of content compared to previous games. Battlefield 2042 has also disappointed its many players, and it led to a great exodus, where the game’s player count on Steam is consistently lower than that of Battlefield 5 and even Battlefield 1.

DICE’s first comment in the new year not related to any outstanding design issues, or discuss future content/roadmaps. According to new details from insider Tom Henderson, that appears to be due to internal ambiguity about the location of the game.

In a new video discussing the state of DICE, Henderson announced that EA is exploring the possibility of creating a free component. While it’s still unclear at this stage which sections will qualify, thoughts are with Portals or Danger Zones. According to the report, it’s more likely that the Danger Zone only attracts a few hundred players per day, so it won’t make the best impression/convert players to the full game.

As Henderson suggests, EA’s earnings call isn’t far off. Taking place on February 1st, it’s likely the publisher will share more about the game’s financial performance and what changes, if any, are being made to accommodate the ship.
