Will The Battlefield 2042 Beta Be Extended?

You can usually expect betas to be extended by 'surprise', but that's when they're happy with the reception, this year, unfortunately... the Battlefield 2042 beta will almost certainly not be extended.



More hands-on time with the game might be exactly what EA needs to earn back people's confidence. But not the multiplayer, unless they can offer a better map. No - they need to provide a second beta that shows off either Portal or Hazard Zone to really recover. Let's see how smart they are here.
