Battlefield 2042 was not the revolutionary next step for the long-running FPS franchise fans had been hoping for, with the futuristic shooter facing a barrage of bugs at launch and backlash from the hardcore community.
Despite it all, EA CEO Andrew Wilson says he has "extraordinary confidence" in the revitalised Battlefield leadership team, and during the company's latest investor report (thanks GamesRadar+), repeatedly mentioned the company's "ability to bring Battlefield back in an entirely new way in the future".
When asked about how projects attached to Battlefield IP are progressing, Wilson stated that "we don't have any date announcements" before proceeding to express his "extraordinary confidence in the progress they're making against the future of that franchise".
In recent months, the Battlefield 2042 ship has begun to turn, with a return to the classic class system fans had been clamouring for and fun limited-time events being implemented (not to mention drastic map overhauls). It's a far cry from the bad old days of support following the title's launch, an era which, at times, felt pretty dire.
