The much-anticipated update is a pretty major addition to the military first-person shooter, as it will added the revamped scoreboard feature, as well as some key improvements. Here’s the official word on the delay from Pat Welsh, the game’s lead community manager:
Hey Folks. Just a quick note to share that we are now expecting our next game update (Update 3.3) to drop next week. We had intended to release it later this week, but made the decision to hold it back so that we’re best positioned to support in case of any issues that might have cropped up over the weekend.
Our decision to release the update next week will mean a further suspension of Weekly Missions, and the system will remain inactive this week. Next week’s update will provide new content that will allow us to reenable this feature.
Update 3.3 will introduce a refreshed Scoreboard, incorporating requests from across the Community to update our format to display Deaths alongside Kills, and a team split to help differentiate leaders per team. Thank you for your feedback and suggestions on this, it’s deeply appreciated by us all.
Gold Edition, Ultimate Edition, Year 1 Pass Holders, Upgraded edition owners, and EA Play Pro subscribers will also be receiving the Steadfast Exclusive Legendary Bundle as shared last month, when this update goes live.
We’ll also have a small range of additional fixes live as part of the game update which will be detailed in our Update Notes next week.
Battlefield 2042 was released for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One in November 2021, although publisher EA has admitted the game’s launch did not meet internal expectations. Elsewhere, Season One of the game has been delayed to Summer 2022.
