The failure that is Battlefield 2042 is becoming more disastrous by the day, with a petition on Change.org highlighting this. The petition, which asks for refunds to be allowed on all platforms for the FPS title, states that the game is a "mockery of every customer who purchased this video game for $70 (USD) due to EA's false advertising." I mean, it isn't wrong, especially when you consider all of the things that have been going wrong with the latest Battlefield title. No scoreboards, the expected bugs, and other issues... at this point you'd be forgiven for wondering what went right as opposed to what went wrong.
The petition continues by stating that EA and DICE didn't keep their promises and Battlefield 2042 was launched in an unplayable state. Even Steam allowed players to receive refunds after the two-hour mark, which they usually don't do unless the game is a massive disaster. Basically, it appears that players want refunds like Cyberpunk 2077 players were able to receive refunds, which just goes to show that if you put your franchise name and a year after it you're asking for trouble.
So far there's been 69,633 signatures as of publishing, which is significant because apparently "one of the best class-action lawsuit lawyers in the country is willing to take our case against EA" if 50,000 signatures were reached, so we'll definitely keep you updated as this story continues to develop.
If you want to buy Battlefield 2042 for some reason, it and all of DICE's games are on sale via Steam, with Battlefield 2042 on sale for $34.79 until February 11th. For more information on Battlefield, EA, and everything in between, stay tuned to TechRaptor.
