Rush, a staple of the Battlefield franchise, is now almost entirely absent from Battlefield 2042. After being added as part of a limited-time event, developer Dice has all but removed the game mode.
Rush has not been removed and will remain in some form/theme in #BattlefieldPortal a few more weeks/months. Rush of Ages has been extended based on community reception and will return in the future. This week it’s Bad Company 2 Rush. pic.twitter.com/1i80e0i9UU

The game mode, which Dice never intended to keep permanently in the game, is currently only playable through a bad company 2 Battlefield Portal Playlist. Before being removed, players said that Rush should become a permanent addition to the game. However, Rush should return to Battlefield 2042other Custom Battlefield Portal games possibly. According to Dice Community Manager Kevin Johnson“Rush of Ages has been extended based on community reception and will return in the future.”
Battlefield 2042The lack of legacy features and game modes, including Rush, Dashboard, and in-game voice chat, has been a point of attention for fans of the franchise since the game’s launch. In response to fan frustrations , EA’s director of integrated communications for shooters and Star Wars, Andy McNamara, tweeted that “fan expectations are brutal”. McNamara went on to say that “the things you want take time to define, design and execute”, before deleting the tweets and apologize and saying his message “wasn’t clear”.
After a series of patches that adjusted the game and fixed the following bugs Battlefield 2042 launched last November, it’s unclear what DICE’s plan is for the game going forward. The game’s main Twitter account recently offered no hints towards more content for the live game, and instead gave fans a post fleshing out its lore and world on January 5. Battlefield 2042 is a multiplayer-only title that has no single-player campaign or story mode.
