Battlefield 2042 will not have voice chat at launch

“Battlefield 2042” introduced a 32-player tactical mode called “Danger Zone”, which I described as “Escape from Tarkov” in my early impressions of BF2042. This is a team-to-team game to get randomly scattered data drives and escape alive. In this mode, communication feels very important, so it is surprising that there is no squad VOIP system in Battlefield 2042.

According to EA, voice chat will be launched “as soon as possible,” but at the time of publication, DICE is assuming that the coordination team will communicate in Discord or other independent chat applications.
