Battlefield 2042 is dropping support for Hazard Zone

At some point, the developers behind Battlefield 2042 have to know when to quit, and now is a pretty good time to do it.

According to EA Dice, it will no longer make new content for Battlefield 2042's Hazard Zone "beyond addressing critical errors and odd behaviors that may appear in the future."

In a way, this is EA telling people that Battlefield 2042 is dead.

What's interesting here is the news of dropping support for Hazard Zone after EA DICE announced it's lowering the required player count for certain modes like Breakthrough and Conquest by half. 

This would suggest that EA DICE already had this planned for a while but waited to break the news, perhaps in an attempt to mitigate the backlash.

The move towards smaller game modes is a sad attempt to try and reinvigorate a dying game.

We'll just have to wait and see what Season 1 of Battlefield 2042 brings, but we don't think anyone's holding their breath for what EA DICE has in store.
