A rumor has been circulating on Reddit that Electronic Arts will pull the plug on Battlefield 2042 support sometime in late 2023, a year ahead of the next game’s launch. However, EA’s Marcus Lehto has said that the “leak” is “total bull****.”
Battlefield 2042 support and updates will continue in 2023
The latest rumor apparently came from a disgruntled former employee who claimed that the new Battlefield game is targeting a fall 2024 release. They also shared paragraphs upon paragraphs of details that concerned series’ fans. Lehto, who is in charge of the next Battlefield’s narrative, was quizzed about the leak by a follower, to which he said:
Yeah, don’t trust leaks dude. Total BS

EA and DICE have previously said that they’re dedicated to Battlefield 2042 despite the game’s rocky launch and subsequent issues. The game will continue to get post launch updates and support throughout 2023, as detailed in a roadmap that was shared late last year.
That said, EA has admitted that Battlefield 2042 “strayed a little too far” and is committed to bringing back a game that includes a traditional campaign and multiplayer features that fans love.
Plans to unveil the next Battlefield game have not been announced yet.
