Battlefield 2042 crashing after 3.2 update on PC & consoles for many

Released in November last year, Battlefield 2042 is one of the most controversial titles in the long-running franchise. It is the first-ever game in the series that does not feature a campaign mode.

But ever since its release, players had complained of various bugs with some saying that Battlefield 2042 marks the downfall of the franchise.


While EA and DICE are working hard to fix the game, new ones seem to be surfacing every once in a while. That being said, Battlefield 2042 players are now reporting (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) that the game is crashing for them after the latest 3.2 update.

Many say that the crashes are so frequent that it is making the game unplayable. Adding to the trouble, players can’t tell when the game might crash.

Moreover, the issue seems to be affecting multiple platforms, suggesting that something is wrong with the recent update.


Consistent Crashing on PC
Has anybody else had consistent crashing on PC? This started on Friday for me, I will play a round and probably 75% through I crash to desktop and have to restart. Then I am good for about a game or two more then crash. I have a Asus Tuf Gaming 3060TI and I have updated the drivers on Friday after the crashing started. Anybody else experiencing this? Or have any ideas?

It was relatively fine until then, at least stability-wise (still missing tons of content and features), but since the last update past Christmas break supposed to “fix” things the game is borderline unplayable. There is a 50/50 chance that the app will crash in any given match, happened 4 times in a row today to the point I quit playing altogether. The only “good” thing this game had (at least on PS5) is that it was somewhat stable and bugs were mostly minor. I was clining on to it but unless it is fixed soon, I’m calling it quits.

Even though EA is yet to acknowledge the issue or clarify what is happening, some players have linked the problem to Denuvo while others say the game crashes when there are more AI in the match.

We hope the developers are able to find the reason why Battlefield 2042 is crashing and fix it in the coming 3.3 update.
