Thanks to Battlefield 2042, Battlefield 4 has been given new life as eager fans of the franchise need their fix, so let’s find out how many are still playing it in 2021.
Battlefield 2042 is one of 2021’s most anticipated games of the year as EA and DICE return to provide millions of players with the tools to unleash destruction. The legendary franchise is known for its large-scale warfare, and Battlefield 2042 aims to bring it to the max.
The wait has proved to be too much for many players though as they have resorted to playing one of its closest comparisons – Battlefield 4. The 2013 title features modern-day/futuristic combat, similar to what 2042 looks to offer, and players have been hopping back into it to prepare.
What is Battlefield 4’s player count in 2021?
With Battlefield 4 being an online multiplayer game, it’s virtually impossible to ever know the live player count as it will constantly fluctuate.
However, using some basic metrics, we can get an idea of how EA’s former behemoth stacks up to current trendsetters and previous BF games 8 years later.
According to Steam Charts, Battlefield 4 had 3,408 peak players in May 2021, and when Battlefield 2042 was announced and unveiled in June 2021, the month’s peak numbers increased to 11,714.
Now, as of September 7, 2021, the game’s last 30 days have seen the game reach a player peak count of 12,284.
Battlefield 4 player count comparison to other Battlefield games & Apex Legends
In comparison, in the last 30 days, Battlefield 1 has hit 30,414 peak players, and Battlefield 5 has topped this with 87,268 peak players.
To use a hot game at the moment, Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has managed to attract 295,361 peak players in the last 30 days.
Battlefield 4 isn’t exactly breaking ground in terms of its peak numbers, but people are clearly still craving that modern-day fix. For a frame of reference, Battlefield: Hardline was released in 2015 and only attracted 80 peak players in the last 30 days.
