If you’re wondering just how many people are still playing Battlefield 4 in 2022, we’ve got everything you need to know about its player count right here.

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, but that changed with Battlefield 4.

Battlefield 2042’s indifferent launch has seen many players flock to Battlefield V 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.

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 decrease slightly to 1,410.3 down from the beginning of September’s total of 1.437.3

Both of these figures are still very respectable and show that the game is still to retain its players with consistent figures in the 1,300-1,600 range many months after Battlefield 2042’s release date.

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.

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 slowly every 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 above — which seems to be increasing over time.

However, the long-awaited launch of Battlefield 2042 Season 1: Zero Hour has actually done wonders for its player count, with the total being boosted by several thousand players. Unfortunately, the hype for the season didn’t last forever, with the average players dropping by just under 1,500 on average — but it’s a step in the right direction to recapturing some of its lost audience.
