For those of you doing something else (it's hard to blame you), it may come as a surprise that Battlefield 2042 is still going. And it's got something to prove.

The game's launch was absolute chaos, with dead reviews and glitches as far as the eye could see. It flew in the face of hopes Battlefield 2042 could be the shooter to define the generation. Now, the game is trying to dust itself off and bring players back after the initial letdown - aiming to prove that it still has something left to give.

You don't have to like it, but damn, you're gonna see it. Battlefield 2042 Season 6 has just been announced as a new means of DICE trying to get the maligned shooter into your peripheral vision.

In spite of its ever-dwindling player base - even after its many avenues to come to players for free - Battlefield 2042 has revealed that it isn't messing about, all by heading into yet another season of content.

New Dawn is the fifth season of Battlefield 2042 and is about to launch on June 7. Those still playing can expect plenty of new things to do in the shooter game. The season has been revealed in a Call of Duty-style, with a new infographic highlighting all of the things to get excited about.

Alongside a new battle pass, Battlefield 2042 is dishing up a new Reclaimed map, new gadgets, a time-limited event mid-way through and more. There's no new Specialist in Battlefield 2042 Season 5, but if you're a fan, DICE plans on making it up to you. 

Battlefield 2042 teases sixth season

As if Battlefield 2042 Season 5 wasn't enough, EA has revealed that there will be a sixth season coming at some point after Season 5. Because it's just been announced, there's no news on the Battlefield 2042 Season 6 release date just yrt.

Confirming the news in a tweet, Battlefield's social channels have promised: "Your Battlefield 2042 journey will continue with Season 6." It's pretty bold of them to presume that we're having a Battlefield 2042 journey at all, but it's chill.

Whether or not the game will be able to maintain enough players to make this move valuable remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure - Battlefield isn't waving the white flag just yet. We'll leave you to decide if that's a good thing or not.
