Dr Disrespect explains how Battlefield 2042 could reignite CoD rivalry
After loving Battlefield 2042’s reveal trailer, Dr Disrespect explained how this year’s title could reignite the franchise’s rivalry with CoD.
Dr Disrespect has long been fed up with Warzone and the current state of gaming but believes Battlefield 2042 could bring back the rivalry with Call of Duty.
Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, who streams under the alias “Dr Disrespect,” has been having a bad time with Warzone recently, saying that he’s “over” the game and might take a break from streaming if another game doesn’t come out soon. Lamenting the game’s audio, visibility, and the state of solos, Doc has said that Battlefield 2042 will be the competition Warzone needs.
In the mid-2010s, Call of Duty and Battlefield were the shooter franchises to buy, with both franchises putting out action-packed, cinematic trailers to rival the other game. After watching Battlefield 2042’s epic reveal trailer, streamer Dr Disrespect believes that the two franchises’ once-great rivalry could reignite.
Throughout Battlefield 2042’s official reveal trailer Dr Disrespect looked impressed throughout and said afterward, “They’re bringing showtime.”
“I’ve gotta be honest, that was a fantastic trailer man. Action-packed. Kind of reminds me of the old days to a certain degree. Remember when Call of Duty was putting out these big trailers and then it was back and forth between Battlefield…I feel like we lost some of that competition the past couple of years, I don’t know why…but I’m liking this.”
Although Doc enjoyed the cinematic trailer, he was quite disappointed that no gameplay was shown. He explained how he’s especially excited for the gameplay reveal on June 13, and here’s how to watch it.
Dr Disrespect has previously said he’s especially excited for a Battlefield battle royale, which he believes could emulate Warzone’s success and be the rival it needs.
While Battlefield 2042 won’t have a battle royale at launch, a recent report claims that 2021’s Call of Duty Vanguard will launch with a brand new WW2-themed map. The competition is set to be fierce at the end of the year, which can only improve both franchises.
If, like Doc, you’re excited to see what DICE has cooked up for Battlefield’s massive scale multiplayer, here’s how you can access the game’s Beta ahead of launch.
