Battlefield 2042 had a rocky start and seems to be struggling to gain any traction, so it’s fair to say the player count probably hasn’t been what EA had hoped. So, if you’re wondering just how many people are still playing Battlefield 2042 in 2022, we’ve got its player count right here.

Invisibility glitches, sky swimming, and overpowered Hovercrafts all contributed to a less-than-ideal launch for Battlefield 2042. EA’s experienced franchise is always considered a major rival to Call of Duty and Halo, and BF 2042 hasn’t quite lived up to the promise.

So we’ve sifted through the data to try and see just how many people are playing Battlefield 2042 in 2022. Not only that, but we’ll line these numbers up against some recent Battlefield games too.

Just to be clear, there is no true data aggregator that can find the live numbers for a game on all platforms. Instead, Steam Charts will represent a percentage of the whole segment using PC figures.

Updated July 29, 2022, with updated player count information.

What’s Battlefield 2042’s player count in 2022?

Battlefield 2042 appears to have fallen into the same bad habits as recent entries in the franchise.

Battlefield 2042’s average player count in the last 30 days was 4,864 and represents an unfortunate player decrease of 1,485 since the last time we checked in.

However, when we compare this figure to the game’s first month, you can still see the drop-off. The first month of Battlefield 2042’s November 19 release saw an all-time peak of 100,590 concurrent players, and by the end of its first 30 days, it was down to 20,075 on average.

Despite the fact that Christmas 2021 arrived and new consumers likely acquired the game, Battlefield 2042’s numbers continued to drop. Even more worryingly, on April 12, 2022, the game dropped below 1K concurrent players for the first time, reaching as low as 931.

Even though these figures only reveal Steam’s traffic, the general consensus would probably certify that this is how things have gone for Battlefield 2042 across all platforms it was released on.

EA and DICE need to fight off bugs and glitches to attract more players to the game.

Before Battlefield 2042’s release, Battlefield 4 saw a huge increase in its active players, causing more servers to be needed. But now that Battlefield 2042 is already in decline, Battlefield V has welcomed a similar boost.

As it stands, Battlefield V is comfortably drawing more concurrent players and so is Battlefield 1, which must be an ongoing concern for Battlefield 2042.

So, there you have it — that’s everything you need to know about Battlefield 2042’s player count thus far in 2022. about Take a look at some of our other Battlefield 2042 guides and content:
