Battlefield 2042 Concurrent Steam Players Hits 10K for the First Time Since January 2022

While it sounds promising, it is not a big achievement at all!

June 10, 2022

Things start to look better for Battlefield 2042 as more players have come back to the game to experience the new content in Season 1, but how long do the good days last for Battlefield?

Battlefield 2042 had a blasting launch, but things started to fall apart very soon as DICE couldn’t manage to deliver new content to the game after a few months, and the existing in-game issues left no choice for players other than to leave it in its agony.

From the beginning of 2022, the number of concurrent players on Steam for Battlefield 2042 started to drop with a significant slope, and later in January 2022, the number reached below 10,000, which was horrible for a new AAA multiplayer-only game.


Unfortunately, things got worse to a point that the number of concurrent players on Steam was ranging between 2K and 3K from mid-February 2022 until earlier this month. However, thanks to the release of Season 1, it looks much better now!

Battlefield 2042 Season 1 Managed to Bring Back Over 11K Players to the Game on Steam

For the first time since January 2022 – which is almost 5 months – Battlefield 2042 now has over 10,000 concurrent players on Steam. This means nearly 11K players who left the game earlier this year are now back again to experience the new content.

Despite this significant achievement, it seems like Season 1 is still a failure in earning the community’s trust back. Battlefield 2042 had over 100,000 concurrent Steam players at launch, which means a big part of them are not satisfied enough with the new content to come back to the game.

Although the concurrent players’ chart doesn’t provide solid information on how many players have returned to the game, the fact that Battlefield V still has more concurrent players compared to Battlefield 2042 even after Season 1 is still undeniable evidence of 2042’s disastrous situation.

That being said, we do hope DICE adds more new maps and interesting content with the next seasons and earns the community’s trust back as 2042 seems potential enough to become a satisfying experience for shooter fans.

Battlefield 2042 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
