Reports Claim Battlefield 2042 Beta Will Begin In September

Reports claim that the Battlefield 2042 beta will begin in September. The news was apparently revealed after the EA Play Live event.

During a video uploaded by YouTuber JackFrags, he was talking about Battlefield 2042, as well as the newly announced Battlefield Portal. JackFrags apparently attended an invite-only event where he obtained this information.

No, a beta date hasn’t been officially announced. Interestingly, at the time of writing, there is no exact date for the Battlefield 2042 beta on the FAQ page. It reads:

Some outlets have outed beta dates

As reported by GameSpot, the outlet claims that you will be able to pre-download the Battlefield 2042 beta on September 3rd. Those that pre-order the game will get early access to the beta. Supposedly, the beta will be open to all on September 6th and will conclude on September 11th.

Battlefield Bulletin, a fan page on Twitter claims that fake screenshots are making the rounds on the internet. However, while an exact date hasn’t been announced by EA, they also state that the beta is coming in September.

Now that the cat is out of the proverbial bag, I am sure that Electronic Arts and DICE will announce a beta date very soon (hopefully). So, watch this space. Are you looking forward to taking part in the Battlefield 2042 beta? Let us know across our social media channels.
