Battlefield 2042 was originally set to launch in October, and while beta plans weren't announced, reliable leaker Tom Henderson had claimed that the game's beta was going to take place next week. However, Battlefield 2042's release date has been delayed to November, and now it seems that EA's plans for its beta have changed as well. While nothing official has been announced, leaker Tom Henderson has provided some new dates for the both early access players and for the open beta.
According to Henderson's information, the new Battlefield 2042 beta dates will be October 6 for early access and October 8 for the open beta. Fans should always take unofficial information like this with a grain of salt, though it's worth pointing out that Henderson has been right on the money with his Battlefield 2042 leaks. Not only did Henderson leak a lot of the gameplay details about the game, but he also was privy to the release date delay before it was announced.
Not only did Henderson accurately leaked the Battlefield 2042 release date delay, but he was right about when the new date would be. Henderson said that he believed the new Battlefield 2042 release date would be in November, and that proved true, with the game now expected to launch on November 19.
October 6th for Early Access and October 8th for Open Beta are the current dates.— Tom Henderson (@_Tom_Henderson_) September 16, 2021
Media and Influencers have also not been given a new date thus far and have just been told to wait for more information.
If Henderson is right about the new Battlefield 2042 beta dates, then one has to imagine that an official announcement will come sooner rather than later. Hopefully the dates come with information on what fans can expect from the Battlefield 2042 beta in terms of maps and game modes as well, but that remains to be seen. As it stands, EA and DICE have been largely quiet about Battlefield 2042 in recent weeks, so fans are growing anxious for more information.
Battlefield 2042 is going to be a multiplayer-only experience that will see players have large-scale battles across current- and next-generation platforms, though the next-gen version of the game will have much higher player counts. The level of destructibility in the Battlefield 2042 maps has been greatly increased, with natural disasters thrown into the mix for good measure. Whether or not it all comes together in a satisfying way remains to be seen, but fans will have a much better idea when they actually get their hands on the game, whenever that may be.
Fans should be learning a lot more about the Battlefield 2042 open beta plans soon.
Battlefield 2042 launches November 19 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
