Battlefield 2042 fans are asking for a full refund of the game as they believe that EA has made “a mockery of every customer who purchased this video game for $70 (USD) due to EA’s false advertising.”
IT has been only three months since the latest Battlefield 2042 release and it has already started to fall down as the player count on steam has dropped to a significant amount, that is not it, on top of that players are also asking for a full refund.
Despite needing to make amends for the game’s rocky launch, EA and DICE recently announced that Battlefield 1’s Season 1 launch had been delayed significantly. This was in spite of EA’s quite clear and damning acknowledgment that sales and reception for Battlefield 2042 were not up to scratch.
However, there is no break for the company as fans have already started a petition for Battlefield 2042 full refund.
What went wrong with Battlefield 2042?
Battlefield 2042 was just an “unfinished release”. The case for the defense is quite simple: “Battlefield 2042 has cost consumers millions of dollars in damages and upset thousands of customers worldwide.”
This is one of the many paragraphs describing how EA’s newest release is “poorly made” and “unplayable.”
It goes on to say that: “Even today, Battlefield 2042 has bugs that drastically change the in-game experience so much that it’s deemed an unfinished release by many community members.
In fact, Battlefield 2042 was so poorly made that even Steam, a highly reputable provider of PC video games, allows customers to get a full refund.”
The petition was first proposed in January 2022 and it managed to get its first 500 signatures in three weeks which was a quite understandable time. Then the word of mouth started to spread and the petition got over 50,000 signatures in the following week only.
According to estimates, it might reach over 55,000 signatures by the end of February 9, 2022.
It concludes by saying: “The gaming community should not tolerate this abuse and bullying from multi-billion dollar corporations who make unfinished games and false advertisements.” As time passes more and more people are joining in and it might not stop until someone from the company addresses it officially.
