It’s delayed a month. And the point is the technical test that was played was likely 5 months or so behind the build it was hived off from.
When it was played is not all that relevant because development on it was frozen at a certain point in time. And you don’t know when that was.
If the tech test represented the position of the actual final build the one months delay is irrelevant. And it’s clear that an NDA’d tech test is not what you think it is. It’s not representative of the final game.
Thats irrelevant. At no point will 2042 outsell COD
Now if 2042 is this amazing game and Vangard sucks shit then next year the next BF may have a chance to outsell COD. Black Ops Cold war was garbage yet sold a shit ton.
A lot of people are all rooting for 2042(i’m not because I rather Halo be the King of FPS this fall) but out of those 2 games…yeah 2042 looks infinitely more interesting. I hope it does well. But In reality it doesn’t have the recognition or userbase of a COD.
I am hoping the whole Activision Scandals will help decrease COD sales significantly. But people see COD on a box and throw money at it.
Doesn’t matter what COD is how bad it is or whatever it will outsell a Battlefield game comfortably. And I’m a massive BF fan and am comfortable in saying it is every installment a better game than COD. But that doesn’t matter.
I’m still concerned about this game though - is it basically chasing COD and BR style and losing what makes BF special?
ehh I still reckon it won’t, but I’m hopeful. Problem with Halo is its not a global brand like CoD (and to a lesser degree BF), but its F2P nature might give it an edge. Halo over Warzone tho? Not happening, sorry.
Thats the problem. People aren’t getting tired. Some people are. I got tired after Black Ops 2. The last COD game I enjoyed and had time for. But people still play this redundant franchise and buy it in drones.
Also why did titanfall 2 sell so poorly when its better than Every Post 360/PS3 Era COD game combined?
And lets get something straight about BF2042. Its a 60-70 Dollar Multiplayer Only FPS. The idea that its going to be this phenomenon is delusional. If it was Free to play and was as good as its being hyped up to be…sure.
2042 is what BFV should have been. Its a little too late for BF to come out and start talking about Dethroning COD.
While I agree, we have a long way to go until any FPS dethrones COD, no matter how shitty COD continues to be. I disagree that BF2042’s issue is that it has no single player. Most BF players didn’t even play the past games single player. It’s popular BECAUSE of it’s addictive MP. And this time around with what they’re doing with bots and Portal mode, there will be plenty of stuff single player peeps can do in 2042 and it looks much more interesting and fun than their campaigns ever were.
Also, aren’t you the one always whining about multiplayer games becoming so prevalent? I don’t think you’d ever think one was “phenominal” regardless of what any of the rest of think. So why are you so focused on games like this right now? Is it just to shit on them?
