Battlefield 2042 is one of the most awaited games of the year, but esports fans still have to wait. The new part of the series should not have a rated status at this time.
Anyone looking for esports tournaments or ranking modes in Battlefield 2042 will be disappointed at first. The title focuses only on casual multiplayer when it releases and hasn’t yet planned anything for competitive players. The reason may be a new part of Battlefield.
Do you want more EA? Here is the Hypermotion demo for FIFA 22:
Battlefield 2042 will not have ranked modes, but they can be added at a later time. The developers will work on competitive elements if the player base so desires.
This was announced by Justin Webby, head of studio Ripple Effect (formerly DICE LA), in an interview with the French community “Battlefield Nation”:
Ripple Effect Studios is for Battlefield Portal is responsible, which must connect many branches. However, there is another reason that Battlefield 2042 did not have the competitive modes initially.
The danger zone is the cause
Well-known leaker Tom Henderson says ranking modes and the esports scene in the Battlefield segment will be the danger zone. This should then receive as much support as Fortnite or Call of Duty: Warzone.
I had a feature coming up on Monday about #BATTLEFIELD2042 eSports – But it appears that one of the developers has already confirmed the information.
The danger zone will have a lot of support and will likely have a “cycle type” of deals, similar to what we see in Fortnite, Warzone, etc.

In a summary for investors, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed the existence of the danger zone. It has been stated there that this part is a service. Games as a service are becoming increasingly popular nowadays. In addition to regular updates, these titles are mostly free 2-Play in this form.
The danger zone will also have this free play element and you will receive many updates. It remains to be seen if this part will be a separate game entirely or part of Battlefield 2042.
