Despite the start of season one attempting to resurrect Battlefield 2042 in terms of average player count, the tense title does not appear to be capable of making a comparable comeback for the second season, which the Battlefield faithful are already criticizing DICE and EA for compromising on content.
temporyal, a well-known data miner in the Battlefield community, provided the data for some of the game's future content, but players stayed glued to the fact that temporyal only provided the one new map for season 2.
That's why it's better not to be the only map.
To describe 2042 as a disappointment for players is a massive understatement. The game was plagued with bugs at the start, the first season of new content was delayed for more than half a year from when it was originally scheduled to be released, and players went so far as to ask EA for refunds based on how disappointing the game was.
Although many players returned to the game in the first season, many of the games' biggest problems have been addressed in recent months, there were still players who criticized the lack of content released in season one. With season two attempting to follow the same model with only one new map and only a few new weapons, players are dissatisfied with the game's state.
The data-mined information comes at a disadvantage to Call of Duty's plan for the final season of Vanguard. Despite the current state of Vanguard and Warzone being like the waiting room for Modern Warfare II, there are still many new maps to be added for Vanguard, as well as new weapons, characters, and game modes.
Season one of Battlefield 2042 is scheduled to begin on September 1, with season two due to begin after the end of season one.
