Battlefield 2042 is apparently down to a skeleton crew to meet the barebones of their obligations according to gaming industry expert, Jeff Grubb.
On a GrubbSnax podcast today, Mr. Grubb went into more detail as you can see in the clip below.
Says Henderson, “The skeleton crew is working to pump that stuff out at the fastest and cheapest way it possibly can.” Henderson would go on to say the team is working to get things done as fast as possible so they can focus on the next Battlefield game currently in development.
Gaming industry writer, Tom Henderson, would also tweet about Grubb’s statement since he previously reported the same situation a few months ago.

It’s not surprising that this is happening. Battlefield 2042 has been a disappointing release, to say the least. The game is rife with bugs and lacks content seen in previous Battlefield games. It’s been subject to many memes and its active player count has dropped over 95% since its initial release, according to SteamDB.
In a surprising move, Electronic Arts (EA) would reach out to Mr. Grubb, telling him the game still has a “significant team across teams working on improving the Battlefield 2042 experience.”

Time will tell if EA has decided to stick with significantly improving Battlefield 2042. We’ll wait to see if the game actually improves within the next few months.
