Battlefield 2042 Year 2 Upgrade Spotted on Origin, Hinting at Another Year of Content
Exciting news for Battlefield 2042 have stormed online. Reddit user daniluk400 has discovered a Year 2 Upgrade for the multiplayer shooter on through EA’s Origin API. This upgrade suggests that the game may be getting ready for another year of content releases, much to the delight of players worldwide.
While the upgrade only features placeholder text, with the name “BATTLEFIELD 2042 – YEAR 2 UPGRADE – PC” and a price of 2 euros (which is likely a placeholder as well), the fact that it was last updated on March 17 indicates that it is a recent addition to Origin’s servers. Moreover, the “storeStartDate” parameter suggests that this offer was meant to be available from March 1, 2023.
Battlefield 2042 recently kicked off its fourth season, dubbed Eleventh Hour, which introduced a host of new content, including a new map, a new recon, and new weapons. However, EA and developer DICE have yet to make any official announcements about future content for the game, discovering the Year 2 Upgrade all the more exciting.
It’s worth noting that EA and developer DICE have previously stated their commitment to Battlefield 2042, despite the game facing some criticism since its launch. In fact, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a recent earnings call that the company is “doubling down” on Battlefield, and that it remains a vital part of EA’s portfolio. Furthermore, EA Dice has repeatedly stated that it doesn’t give up on its “previous flagship” shooter, even after being overtaken in popularity by other games like Apex Legends. The discovery of the Year 2 Upgrade on Origin seems to confirm that commitment, and fans of the franchise can rest assured that more content is on the way.
