EA Exec Tweets and Deletes About "Brutal" BF2042 Expectations

A tweet from EA executive Andy McNamara announces he has deleted some tweets about Battlefield 2042, saying: "Deleted the tweets. Seems my message wasn’t clear. Apologies." As noted by Flakfire (thanks Tom Henderson), these tweets included criticism of gamer expectations, calling them "brutal," so it seems the message may have been more unwelcome than unclear. Here was what McNamara said about gamers expecting more than they've gotten from the military shooter sequel.
Back to work today, check Reddit and Twitter and battlefield fans are pissed we didn't do enough updates or communication during the holiday break. Guys, people gotta rest. We have things in motion but we have to figure out what is possible. We will address it when are 100%.

Let us get back from break and get back to work. Love you guys but these expectations are brutal. The things you want take time to scope, design, and execute.

Entitled battlefield fans say mean things.
Entitled battlefield fans don't know anything about how games are made or developed.
Entitled battlefield fans don't understand or care about the holidays.

And obviously this guy doesn't know anything about how to communicate to them.

He should have said something like this.
"Hope you all had a great holiday. We know your concerns. our team is well rested and we will have a road map up in a few days on what we are going to do to address them."

You know, meaningless happy words.

That's just about right...
