Battlefield 2042 is getting rid of 128-player Breakthrough

It looks like Battlefield 2042 has begun the process of rethinking the major shift to 128 players in its game modes. As part of this morning’s new update, the 128-player Breakthrough playlist has been abolished. Going forward, Breakthrough will be limited to the classic 64 players.

This, of course, only applies to the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S versions – since last-gen consoles are already limited to 64 players.

Interestingly, however, DICE will be using the 128-player versions of some of the game’s maps in the 64-player playlists. Discarded, Manifest, Orbital, and Kaleidoscope will retain the 128-player version, whereas Hourglass, Breakaway, and Renewal will play the 64-player layout.
