Battlefield 2042 has problems, Cyberpunk 2077 is cheering
Battlefield 2042 lands in second place. The new DICE shooter joins the increasingly long line of bumpy launches in 2022, but can still convince many players at first glance. The problem only becomes apparent on closer inspection, because the numbers show a clear downward trend. It remains to be seen whether DICE can turn things around again soon.

But that is not the only reason for the new heyday, as Steffi shows you in her detailed analysis.
