Battlefield 2042 didn’t have the pristine launch EA wanted it to, but that doesn’t mean DICE and Ripple Effect haven’t been working hard to fix its issues since. Now, coming back from holiday break, EA’s director of communications is asking fans to give the team time, and to let people rest.
Andy McNamara describes the expectations of Battlefield 2042 fans as “brutal”, after taking a glance at the Reddit and Twitter accounts for Battlefield 2042.
McNamara has since deleted the tweets, although you can see this screenshot via MP1st.
Dealing with player expectations is never easy, and as McNamara rightly points out, many people are quick to forget the effort it takes not just to develop a game but to continue adding to it.
That’s not to say they’re off the hook for issues players face. They ought to be fixed, but teams shouldn’t be made to feel unentitled to time off to rest and relax themselves.
