He also stated, “I’m totally down if that actually takes off. If it’s Thursday, I’m going to be so sad. That is going to be on… I have no idea. Maybe it will be this week.”

So, while Lirik closes by stating that he doesn’t know when the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta will be, he does seem to think it will be this week. DICE has confirmed that the beta will be sometime in September 2021.

For those who pre-ordered Battlefield 2042, they will gain access to the beta early. This means that Lirik could have been referring to early access to the beta.
