EA's latest military shooter is less popular on Steam than the next entry in the Farming Sim franchise
Battlefield 2042 isn’t having a great launch. Between bugs, a lack of content, and other problems, including the surprise release of Halo Infinite’s free multiplayer, Dice and EA’s big shooter is in the news for all the wrong reasons. And now, it seems more players on Steam want to go farming than shooting, as the recently released Farming Simulator 22 has more players than BF 2042.
Released on November 19, Battlefield 2042 currently has about 50k players online, with a peak of 52k in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, Farming Simulator 22, released on November 22, sits at nearly 88k concurrent users and peaked in the last 24 hours at 94k.
