Earlier his week saw the release of the China Rising DLC for Battlefield 4, which as excited some players – but left many others feeling cold. the reason? The game they bought last month still isn’t working properly, regardless of the platform. As a result, DICE has now put expansions for the game on the backburner, to get the game that they’ve already released working properly.
DICE is "not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4," EA told IGN.
“First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us with Battlefield 4,” they said in a statement. “We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game — it is absolutely our No. 1 priority.
“The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game. Since Battlefield 4 China Rising expansion pack was already in the final stages of development by the time issues began with Battlefield 4, we decided to fulfill our promise to deliver it this week, but we’re not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4.
“We know many of our players are frustrated, and we feel their pain. We will not stop until this is right.”
It’s honestly about time. Honestly, I think the game was a little rushed to meet the launch and could probably have done with a little more time in the oven. I know a fair number of people who’ve been moaning about Battlefield 4 since its release; server issues, glitches and freezing have been ruining peoples’ online experiences with the game. Unfortunately, this does mean that the studio won’t be working on Star Wars Battlefront 3 any time soon.
Have you experienced any soul-crushing issues with Battlefield 4?
