Battlefield 2042 Season 3 is just around the corner and EA DICE are gearing up for the launch with fresh batch of content

Game Designer Frederik Drabert has revealed that almost everyone at EA DICE are currently working on fixing and improving the Battlefield 2042 experience. 

So, what's next for Battlefield 2042? More updates, more content and fixes. EA DICE Game Designer Frederik Drabert reveals on Twitter that almost the whole EA DICE team are currently working hard on many different areas of Battlefield 2042 and a lot of improvements are on the way. 

When asked specifically about the specialists, one of the most unpopular features of Battlefield 2042 and whether EA DICE have plans to remove them, Drabert replied that Specialists will receive a major rework but won't be removed from the game since Specialists are connected to a lot of parts of the game. 

"It is not that easy. I saw the community proposals (kudos to everyone who put effort in it) and there is more design work required. The specialists touch a lot of parts in the game that need to be considered during a redesign. So it‘s more than take it and code it."  

"Specialists will not be removed but reworked."

In addition to Specialists' improvements, some of these upcoming updates will introduce major changes to certain maps like Kaleidoskop and Renewal. EA DICE are looking to rework the traversal, pathing, line of sight and add additional cover to improve the overall gameplay.

Battlefield 2042 failed to generate post-launch hype due to many bugs and issues as well as some questionable design decisions that the Battlefield community did not take lightly. 

EA and DICE have promised more updates and patches throughout the year but the question begs, is it already too late? 

Surely it is if you look at the player count on Steam but luckily that's only one platform where Battlefield 2042 launched so it's safe to say that the total player count is much bigger.
