EA boss Andrew Wilson spoke about the success - or lack thereof - of Battlefield 2042 during EA's most recent earnings call, addressing the game's disappointing launch.
“We did have a challenge in Q3 as the launch of Battlefield 2042 did not meet expectations,” Wilson said. “Battlefield 2042 was always an ambitious game and our teams pushed to innovate across many dimensions including massive scale and 128-player matches, new modes, new dynamic gameplay and more…developing this game with our teams working from home for nearly two years ultimately proved to be challenging.”
Wilson also made reference to design decisions within Battlefield 2042 that didn't “resonate with everyone” as well as “unanticipated performance issues”.
EA's chief financial officer, Blake Jorgensen, also spoke about the game, calling sales of Battlefield 2042 “disappointing”
“We're committed to turning Battlefield around and building a sustainable live service, even if some of the actions we're taking, like moving the first season into FY 2023, impact net bookings in the short-term,” Jorgensen concluded.
