Because it's still selling....
When it stops selling they will put it on there.

Is it? I hadn't seen any numbers.

The week of the MW2 open beta, the game felt empty. Took a longer time to find games at peak times over the weekend. There's no way to see overall player numbers, but the game doesn't feel like it is increasing in players.

If not for crossplay, I wouldn't find a game on Xbox. I would like to be positive about this game, but it is about to get wrecked by MW2 and Warzone 2 (more the latter I think).

Sounds like a much needed nerf to the Avancys, AM40, K30 and MP9. Nothing to the SFAR though? That will be your new meta if so.

The infantry only mode starts up this week too, so that should be fun.

Apparently everything together costs 60 euro ~ 60usd lol.

All for a game that sadly might not even be around after 6 more months.

The sad thing is, people will buy this stuff. I just want to play the infantry based playlist.

I'm not a fan of the mode either. Just seems like one team sets up a spawn camp on the other and then it is over quickly. The losing team tries to push the furthest objective which rarely works, as once someone gets a spawn trap set up there really isn't time for a comeback. In one game I had 1 kill, simply because we pushed the other team back to the hard line where we can't go past and they just hit and ran the clock out.

Although, I read that it will go to 16v16 after this week for some reason which might be a little better.

So... class rework not coming until late season 3. Season 4 might be the last. I honestly don't see how this is going to bring anyone back who already left.

Can we please change squads, so fustrating.

You actually can, but it is comically hidden. Go to the player list and find you and select it. It will give you the option to leave and it will find you a new squad randomly. It has been there all along, but of course the interface is so bad it doesn't even tell you.

HOW...HOW... why do they keep breaking and changing aim assist!?! its like this is their first console game they ever made! and they manage to f*** it up so badly when we are forced to play against K+M players 😂 i'll be honest i hate crossplay in PvP shooters

I switched to PC for COD this year. Console players have no chance in most of these games. Especially a game like 2042 that has so much ranged combat.

Maybe it is just that I play so much Destiny on PC now, but I feel so much better with the mouse. The only game where I feel like the aim assist is crazy good is Halo Infinite. That's the only game I can think of where I'd choose controller.

We’re proud of the work that we’ve done over the past 12 months and so if you haven’t jumped in yet, starting in Season 3 we’ll be introducing Battlefield 2042 into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and making the game available for subscribers with EA Access. While in December, we’ll also have free access periods across all platforms*.

About time on Game Pass. Why they waited until after MW2/WZ2 is puzzling to me.

Supposedly season 4 will not be the end of content either.

Support THROUGHOUT 2023 would be good enough for me.

Looks like and as expected Jeff Scrub was fos.
No. Because "support" isn't definitive. It covers a multitude of things without committing to anything. Same for "content" this content beyond season 4 could just be microtransaction skins in the store, that wouldn't be good.

Until they commit to new maps, weapons, gadgets, gear, etc their word needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
