Battlefield 2042 Matchmaking Failed Error Fix
A lot of people have been getting the matchmaking error since the servers went down yesterday. There was a patch rolled that players needed to download once the servers came back on. If you have not downloaded this update, the version mismatch between the server and client could be causing the matchmaking issue.
The same may apply after the game is launched. There will be a day-one patch that both players who preloaded and the early access players are required to download. If you did not update the game, it’s likely you will get this error.
If you can’t see an option to update the game, simply restart the client you are playing the game on and the update should be available. The play button should appear as Download. Sometimes the update can also take time to reach different regions, so wait for some time if you can’t see the option to update the game.
It’s also possible that the problem could be with the Steam cache as it’s storing the old version of the game date and that’s causing the server-client conflict. Clear the download cache and the issue may be fixed. Go to Steam > Settings > Downloads > Clear Download Cache.
In some cases, you may also see the error when the servers are down. Check if the servers are operational or not before trying anything at this point. If the servers are up and none of the solutions worked, you may have to get in touch with EA support.
In case, the issue is unrelated to the update and there is a simple glitch, turning off the crossplay is known to fix some matchmaking issues, so you can try that before contacting support.
