Battlefield 2042: Release Date, Trailer, Leaks, Setting, PS4 And Everything You Need To Know

Battlefield 2042 is expected to be released before the end of 2021.

Battlefield 2042 is due to launch this year and is next in line in EA’s successful wartime franchise.

Typically an all-out military warzone experience with up to 64 players, it is an exciting time for the American gaming organisation to team up with DICE once more to produce arguably one of the best first-person shooters that money can buy.

The first Battlefield, titled “1942,” was released back in September 2002 for Microsoft PC and OS X, and has gone on to become a phenomenal success with the following 10 main releases, with a significant number of spin-off games during that timeframe.

Information is still limited regarding Battlefield 6 and we will update this article once more details are revealed by EA and DICE.
