The game was working fine before the update, after the update every time I launch the game, it just freezes on a black screen, i tried allowing it through the firewall, i tried updating the GPU driver, i also allowed the anti-cheat system through the firewall, i tried repairing the anti-cheat system, nothing worked so far.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you all very much for all the reports! Our teams are still investigating the issue and all the reports that have been added are helping a lot, thanks again!
Unfortunately, we currently do not have an update available as to what might be causing this issue for some players or what could be a solution that works for everyone.
For reporting of the issue, please mention the platform you're playing the game on Origin/EA app, Steam or Epic launcher?
Update: check if changing the language of the game allows the game to launch (change it back afterwards), this only works on Origin.
If you are playing via the EA Desktop App, switch over to Origin (download/install Origin)
We have seen some workarounds that can help you while we continue investigating the issue:
*For players who are still experiencing issues via Origin and no workaround has fixed the issue: can you please try to create an Origin Error Report and post the Report ID here in the thread?
*Marking this as a temporary solution to make it more visible to visitors of this thread.
After the most recent update, BF 2042 will not launch. The application freezes at a black screen until I force quit.
Did not have any issues launching the game before this update.
Anyone else having this issue?
I installed the latest graphics drivers and have restarted my PC.

@RacialAdhesive-Sounds like something went wrong with your update (corrupt file or registry maybe). Try to repair the game through Origin / EA App.
It's also possible that something in the Settings folder is conflicting with your previous settings. THia folder is found in My Documents in the Battlefield 2042 folder. you might try deleting those also.
I too have this issue. I had an issue with the Beta EA App that had issues downloading it but the App restore fixed that and I was able to update the game. After updating it runs through the initial launch window then loads a window to a constant black screen. I have tried the above users efforts and re-ran App restore and reboot windows a few times. I am running windows 10 build 19042.1348, gtx 1080 TI and a 3770k.
