How to check if the Battlefield 2042 server is down

“Battlefield 2042” is now available for players who pre-ordered the special edition, and players have been experiencing connection problems for the first few hours. The error we see is “Unable to load persistent data”, which may appear in the main menu when trying to join the server or when connecting to the online service of Battlefield 2042.

“The inability to load persistent data is a connection issue on our side,” the developer said at 10 am on Friday, Pacific Standard Time. “We are working on it. Now you can click Retry and try to join the server.”
