Battlefield 2042Unfortunately, it did not meet the expectations of the fans. Not only did it debut with a myriad of technical and connection issues, it also lacks the charm of previous installments in the franchise. As expected, the community gradually abandoned the title and migrated to other similar experiences.
While the above is a normal phenomenon, it is surprising that an independent game that, to some extent, tries to imitate the action of Battlefield, became the alternative that many players chose to get rid of the bad taste in their mouths left by the most recent installment of the DICE and Electronic Arts war saga.

A copycat beats Battlefield 2042 on Steam
We refer to BattleBit Remastered, a low poly looking free to play indie shooter that is currently available under the Steam Early Access model on PC. This multiplayer experience features loads of vehicles, weapons, classes, and a map with destructible elements that up to 240 players can compete on, so it’s no surprise that fans of Battlefield They chose to give it a try.
So much so that, last Wednesday, January 19, BattleBit Remastered retained for a few minutes more players than Battlefield 2042 on Steam. This was announced by the prestigious insider and journalist Tom Henderson through his Twitter account.
It’s Free-to-play on steam and is essentially a low poly Battlefield-esque experience. It’s a lot of fun tbh. I might stream it tonight!

Specifically, the indie game peaked at 4,253 concurrent players on Valve’s platform, while Battlefield 2042 only had 3,801 concurrent users at the time.
As of this writing, the situation is slightly better for the shooter from Electronic Arts and DICE. We say this because 7136 players are playing right now, while BattleBit Remastered It has 3606 concurrent users.
This situation reveals once again the unfortunate state of Battlefield 2042. Since its release in November, it has done nothing but lose players, to the point that even cheat providers stopped their services for the game due to lack of public interest.
