Honestly, this one hurts.
Battlefield has been the source of some of the best multiplayer action in the history of the First Person Shooter genre, with the original titles, the Bad Company games, and Battlefield 3 being standouts. With its large maps filled with vehicles and destructible environments, it was just pure, solid, action-packed fun.
But since then, the series has been a lot more inconsistent when it comes to its quality. Battlefield 4 and Hardline had mixed receptions, and then Battlefield 1 and 5 afterwards (gaming titles are weird) were received well, having the series go through some peaks and valleys as a result.
The latest title though, fell into a crater.
Battlefield 2042 could've been great, with the inclusion of random weather effects possibly adding the last real bit of innovation the series could have had. But the lack of single-player content, bad maps, terrible UI design, and glitches and bugs were just some of the issues that made fans incredibly unhappy.
At this point, there's nothing really new the series can do, and with 2042 leaving such a bad taste in peoples' mouths, it's best to just let it go.
