To get ready for Battlefield 2042, fans of EA and DICE’s war shooter flocked to Battlefield 4 in late 2021. With Battlefield 2042 having been released, how many people are still playing BF 4 in 2022? Here’s the latest player count in 2022.

Before Battlefield 2042, the last two entries of the franchise took players back to the muddy trenches of World War combat. It had been quite some time since Battlefield had a modern-day edge to it, that being BF4.

Battlefield 2042’s indifferent launch has seen many players flock to Battlefield 5 for their large-scale skirmishes, whereas some have even headed back to the near-futuristic confines of Battlefield 4.


This begs the question, how many people are playing Battlefield 4 in 2022, and what’s the current player count? Here’s everything we know using Steam Charts for our data, which can be extrapolated and used to give an idea of the wider figures across other platforms.

Updated June 8, 2022, with fresh player count information.

Battlefield 4’s average player count has been a lot higher than most would’ve expected.

What’s Battlefield 4’s player count in 2022?

If we take a look at the last 30 days, we have seen the average number of Battlefield 4 players increase slightly to 1,498, up from May’s total of 1,355.

Both of these figures are still very respectable and show that the game is still managing to retain its players with consistent figures in the 1,300-1,500 range.


Previously, during the build-up to Battlefield 2042 back in October 2021, the fourth main game in the series saw a huge boost in its all-time peak with 12,342 players enjoying the game simultaneously on Steam.

The figures then dropped drastically by the end of November 2021, with the average player count dropping from 4,926 in October to 2,237 in November.

Despite being over 8 years old, Battlefield 4 still has a healthy player base.

How does the Battlefield 4 player count compare to other BF games?

Despite strong, initial player count numbers for Battlefield 2042, they have been dropping off quite substantially month on month.

This has led to a lot of people playing Battlefield V instead, with the game having a consistent daily player count of around 2,000+, and of course, Battlefield 4 too.


Battlefield 2042 is getting ready to begin Season One and its potential success could greatly influence the player counts for all the Battlefield games.

So, there you have it – that’s everything you need to know about Battlefield 4’s player count in May 2022. Make sure to check back for all of the latest updates.
