Battlefield 2042’s toxic subreddit may remain locked after developer harassment

A tweet from a Battlefield 2042 spokesperson sparked a social media buzz that could eventually shut down the game’s official subreddit. In response to fans criticizing DICE for a lack of communication and patches throughout the end of December, EA global communications director Andy McNamara told fans in a now-deleted tweet that the Battlefield team had just returned to work after a holiday break.

“Guys, people have to rest. We have a lot to do, but we have to figure out what’s possible,” McNamara said. “Let’s come back from a break and get back to work. Love you guys, but these expectations are brutal. What you want takes time to be identified, designed and executed.”
