When it launches, Battlefield 2042 will release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The release on all major platforms has some players breathing a sigh of relief, especially with the PS5 and Xbox Series X still being difficult for players to get a handle on, others are concerned about how the game will run on the last generation consoles.
