Battlefield 2042 will release on October 22 of this year, barring any possible delays that might happen.

Seeing it release near the holiday season isn’t exactly a huge surprise since that’s when game sales are at their craziest so be sure to pre-order a copy in advance.

Battlefield 2042 Platforms

Battlefield 2042 will release on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

There was little chance of this game coming to the Nintendo Switch or Google Stadia but it’s good to see Battlefield 2042 coming to modern consoles like PS4 and Xbox One.

Gameplay

The first gameplay for Battlefield 2042 was shown off during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021. You can watch it here. There will be more gameplay shown in the coming weeks as EA Play events take place on July 22.

Player Count

Battlefield 2042 will allow for 64 players on last-gen/current-gen consoles the PS4 and Xbox One, while the next-gen and PC versions will allow for 128 players, as explained here.

While we're sure PS4 and Xbox One owners are disappointed at only having half the player count of next-gen consoles, 64 players are nothing to sneeze at and we're sure it will still be a good time.

That's everything we know about Battlefield 2042 thus far, though expect more information to come out as the release date draws near.
