Electronic Arts and DICE are drawing further conclusions from the more or less disastrous appearance of the shooter Battlefield 2042. A mode from the flopped shooter will no longer be developed further.
DICE had certainly imagined it very differently: The shooter hope Battlefield 2042 was harshly criticized immediately after publication, was buggy and problematic and received bad reviews and sales figures. As a result, the development team pushed back the release of additional content and has been working since then to improve gameplay and overall performance. There are now further consequences for the Hazard Zone mode.
As the studio has now announced, the future development of the once hopeful game mode Hazard Zone is to be scrapped. A statement said they had “great ambitions and hopes” for Hazard Zone, but have since realized they “didn’t find the right home” for the part in Battlefield 2042. The team will therefore realign the focus and focus all energy on the game modes that are played most often by the players.
Regardless of the future lack of further development of the mode, Hazard Zone will remain in Battlefield 2042. However, only serious errors and any strange misconduct that may occur will be eliminated, but there will no longer be any new gaming experiences in this area of the shooter. Future maps will also no longer support the mode.
Independently of Hazard Zone, the statement emphasizes that work on Renewal is “progressing well” and should be completed sometime after Season 1. The innovations should noticeably improve the infantry experience on the map.
Season 1 of the shooter is scheduled to start in June and marks the beginning of a year of new content. This year there will be four seasons, four new specialists, additional maps, new weapons and gadgets. A Battle Pass is also part of the game, through which you can earn new items.
