More than 134,000 gamers who purchased Battlefield 2042 are demanding that Electronic Arts refund their money.

It has been less than a week since the petition went live on and at the time of writing more than 134,000 people have signed the request. The petition has been so successful that class-action lawyers have taken note.

Battlefield 2042 comes with a two-week refund policy from Sony and Microsoft while PlayStation players lose their ability to request a refund the moment a download starts. However, Sony will refund “faulty” software.

Sadly, as Games Radar points out, that “faulty” policy likely only applies to games that won’t play at all. EA on its own platform only allows for a 24-hour window, 72 hours if the game is unplayable because of issues caused by EA.

Steam will allow for a two-week refund but only if players don’t engage in more than a two-hour play window. Here’s how to refund a game on Steam.

The petition arrives not long after EA admitted in early February that the game has been a complete disappointment, missing sales numbers by a wide margin.

The company has promised that it’s “fully committed” to fixing Battlefield 2042, although we still don’t know how they plan to accomplish that goal in a timely manner given the absolute horror show that is the current version of the game. The game’s developer, DICE has promised some updates within a few months.

In the meantime, in the amount of time that I just spent writing the past few paragraphs the number of players who have signed the petition now tops 135,000. Ouch.
