Battlefield 2042 Beta Launch Date Seemingly Leaked by Italian Retailer
Battlefield 2042 is still around six weeks away, but it seems those who have pre-ordered may be able to get their hands on the game as early as next week. This info comes courtesy of a retail listing from MediaWorld, which is the Italian branch of MediaMarkt (the biggest electronics retailer in Europe). In other words, this is definitely a retailer in the position to have the inside track on such things. According to the listing, “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.”
As alluded to by the MediaWorld listing, those who pre-order Battlefield 2042 get first access to the beta, so it’s likely the full open beta will kick off after the early access period ends on September 11. Of course, take this all with a grain of salt for now, but these kinds of retailer leaks often end up being the real deal. As for when an official announcement may come, well, the official Battlefield social media accounts are still playing coy.
