Pre-production has reportedly begun on the next Battlefield game, and will see the series revert to its familiar roots after changes introduced in Battlefield 2042 weren't well-received.
According to a report on XFire--who previously suggested a free-to-play mode may be in development--developer DICE has learned "valuable lessons" from Battlefield 2042 and will no longer be using that game as the new foundation for the long-running FPS franchise. One former developer who recently departed from DICE after the launch of Battlefield 2042 had suggested that the next Battlefield was at one point being designed to be even more of a "hero shooter" style of game.
It's claimed that recent playtest and feedback sessions were focused on the class system in Battlefield 2042, and this resulted in these plans being changed so that specialist roles will be tied more closely to classes. XFire also reported that the next Battlefield will be set in the modern-day or near future once again, as opposed to Battlefield 2042 which takes place several decades from now in a world where climate change has created a paradigm shift in society.
As for Battlefield 2042's future, EA and DICE are still required to release new specialists, modes, weapons, vehicles, and maps as part of its battle pass obligations, which is being handled by a dedicated team within DICE.
The next update to featured experiences in Battlefield 2042's Portal will shake up how the featured modes work, with a change to both the number of featured experiences and how often they refresh. As announced on the Battlefield Direct Communication Twitter, the number of experiences featured at once will be reduced from five to two, but the modes will now refresh twice a week instead of once.
On Thursday, March 24, we’re changing how we’re rotating Featured Experiences within #BattlefieldPortal
The change will come into play from the next refresh, on Thursday March 24, when the featured modes will update to include 2042 TDM, 1942 vs 2042 Conquest, and Rush Hardcore. After that, featured experiences will update twice a week, every Monday and Thursday.
In the thread, DICE explains that the reason for the change is to put more focus on the game modes when they are featured, by reducing the number that are featured at any one time. The Battlefield developer is also introducing a new Friday Night Battlefield experience, which will be available for 24 hours every Friday through Portal, with a new game experience available every week.

Microsoft lets you run Windows 11 on unsupported hardware, but if you do, be prepared to be reminded about it. A recent Windows Insider preview marked as a release candidate adds a watermark to the desktop, warning you that you're using unsupported hardware along with a matching note in the main window of the Settings app, as spotted by Windows Latest.
This latest move continues to apply pressure to upgrade to newer PCs with more modern security features, which is clearly a goal for Microsoft. If your Windows 11 PC isn't up to official snuff, you'll see a watermark in the lower-right corner of your screen stating “System requirements not met. Go to settings to learn more.” It's similar (though less in-your-face) to the watermark you'll see when you're running Windows without properly activating it first.
In the past, running unactivated versions of Windows resulted in feature restrictions such as being unable to personalize your system or wallpaper. Microsoft doesn't appear to be introducing similarly heavy-handed measures alongside this Windows 11 watermark—a good thing, as users who took advantage of Microsoft's workaround to get the new OS on old hardware still paid for their copy of Windows.
Bottom line? The new watermark might annoy you, but it's nothing to fear…yet. That said, if you're running Windows 11 on unsupported hardware, you're doing so at your own risk and everything may break eventually. Rather than rolling the dice, consider sticking with Windows 10 for now instead. It still works great with support planned through 2025 and you shouldn't upgrade to Windows 11 yet anyway.
