EA denies that Battlefield 2042 development is ending: ‘We are committed to the future’

EA has retaliated against allegations that Battleground 2042 (opens in new tab) is now running on a skeleton team and rushing the promised content so it can move on to the next entry.

The answer comes after comments made by journalist Jeff Grubb during his GrubbSnax show. “This game is basically a minimal team,” he told Twitch viewers during the broadcast. “It’s as if the barebones and these people are specifically working on the promised additional seasons that the game needs to meet the requirements of the high-end version it sold.”

He continued, “The Skeleton team is working to pump these things out as quickly and cheaply as possible. There’s no other way to put it.” Grubb added that those who paid for the premium editions should set their expectations “very low for this content”, saying that EA is “only going to release it fast and dirty and so the idea is… the reason they’re doing it.” it’s to move everyone to the next battlefield as quickly as possible. It’s time to abandon ship.”

A few hours after the broadcast concluded, Grubb tweeted that EA had reached out to him to say his comments were “untruths”.

“There is a significant team at the studios focused on evolving and improving the Battlefield 2042 experience for our players, and at the heart of that is our team at DICE,” the statement continued. “We are committed to the future of Battlefield 2042 and our areas of focus for the game, based on what we’ve heard from our players, were established in our recent development update (opens in new tab).”

Grubb followed up EA’s response with one of the your own (opens in new tab): “If you hear two stories about what is happening, look for the space where both are true.” He also added that he would talk more about this in an upcoming Giant Bomb podcast.

Battlefield 2042 season one (opens in new tab) arrives today, June 9th. It brings a new map and a battle pass with a new specialist, which fortunately can be unlocked in the free lane. Its release should be a good indicator of what’s to come and perhaps a better look at which side of the story is more accurate.
