@Stew360 Yeah Murray did a great job, he actually put in the hard work and finished the game to be what it whas marketed to be and more.

Now Dice needs to do the same, 2042 whas marketed as a BF3/BF4 successor when it clearly is not.

@Stew360 well if I look at the steam player count it was also never exactly alive except right after release. It had many players in the beginning and then dropped hard. It was never able to recover. The game had some peaks after the updates but was never able to hold players long-term.

 

So your example was actually quite good - Battlefield 2042 will share a similar fate. In my book 3000-6000 or even 10000 steam players are not a success, especially for an AAA-title like Battlefield. Also, Hello Games is a small developing studio - DICE on the other hand is a big studio with a different and more solid capital structure behind. I think that EA and DICE have bigger aspirations than this small studio. Moreover Battlefield is a series with a regular release scheme whereas the other title was a single release with no successor, that is also a big difference. 

 

EA and DICE will rather depreciate the game and develop a new one instead of putting a lot of passion and money in 2042 trying to save it for a handful of people. If a game's repetition is that bad it will never be repaired completely. Most players will not even care any more because they have moved on to other titles.

@Blackidus Ah, BF2 was so much fun competitive! Maybe I've fought you, we ranked 7th in european league on year. We used to use a software to draw out different strategies and possible events to prepare and stuff.
I agree, hours are irrelevant.

@Stew360 "dynamic weather and destruction are certainly impressive to say the least" you can't HONESTLY tell me that they have even remotely played this game let alone enjoyed it..
this statement is entirely false and factually incorrect

@EmineNc33 He got to be trolling, right?
Dynamic weather?? It's a sandstrom, which in reality is a simple fog event. And then it is the silly thunderstorm. None of them actually affect anything but visuals. Yes ok, you get teleported a few meters.
