Those looking forward to Season 1 of Battlefield 2042 may wait a while, as the latest game client data indicates that Season 1 is slated to start in March 2022. This suggests that DICE may not release new content (maps, weapons, etc.) in the first two months of 2022.
The #Battlefield2042 client includes weekly missions for 12 preseason weeks.
🗓️ Season 1 seems to be scheduled for March 2022 (unless they’ve added a few weeks as “backup”).
🇨🇦 “Exposure” is probably the final name for the previously datamined “Ridge” map.

In addition, 12 pre-season weeks are indicated in the game client, which corresponds to the launch date of Season 1 in March. Players could face a long drought with new content if DICE doesn’t add multiple seasons to the game as “backup” challenges. The map that players will receive in Season 1 is called ‘Exposure’, which was initially designated as Ridge.
It’s important to note that this info comes from the game files, and DICE could suddenly release the first season of Battlefield 2042 sometime in January 2022 if they choose so. Or release a map, mode, or weapon out of season, so anything is possible.
