Battlefield 2042 beta dates might have been leaked online. According to industry insider Tom Henderson, who posted images from the Chinese video streaming website Bilibili, Battlefield 2042 beta will run from October 6 to October 9. However, these are leaks, so they should be taken with a grain of salt.
