A store listing for Battlefield 2042 states that the game’s beta will take place between September 6 to 11. The listing, on Media World, states: “Pre-order this product by September 3 and you will receive access to the early beta of the game from September 6 to September 11.”
Videogames Chronicle reached out to EA to ask about the authenticity of the store’s claims, and was greeted with a simple answer: “Our Open Beta release window is September.” If the beta is actually starting on September 6, then EA should be revealing that on social media soon enough. At the very least, Battlefield’s social media handle poked fun at fan requests to learn more about the upcoming beta.
