Battlefield 2042’s Christmas Skins Axed? - Get2Gaming


It doesn’t look like Santa Claus will be on the front line after all…

We reported yesterday that you can expect Christmas-themed skins to be added to Battlefield 2042 this holiday, following a leak on social media.

Well, I am sorry to tell you that DICE has come out today and squashed the rumours via their official Twitter account. “Development for Live Service requires us to work months in advance and enables us to have options when we reach key moments in our first year,” DICE stated, explaining that the skins were developed as options–an option it’s not taking.

“Today, we have other priorities, and so whilst we have the skins, we presently have no plans to utilize all of them this Holiday,” the studio concluded.

DICE also mentioned that it will create “unique cosmetics for single-time use in special Battlefield Portal modes,” so players may encounter mode-locked cosmetics in the future.

However, while players can’t get the controversial skins and go around spreading holiday cheer as a murderous Santa Claus, DICE did promise opportunities to obtain other skins. Starting the week of December 6, players can complete objectives to earn new skins and new items. Every week, there will be a new skin to unlock until Season 1.

In other news, October and November have seen some big next-gen titles released, including Call of Duty: Vanguard, Battlefield 2042, FIFA 22, Far Cry 6, and Left 4 Dead’s spiritual successor, Back 4 Blood. You can purchase all of these titles, as well as pre-ordering the Halo Infinite Campaign, Elden Ring and any other games from our Go2Games website.
