Ever since its release last month for various consoles, Battlefield 4 has been stirring up a storm with players nationwide. Not all of them are pleased, however, as various online problems with the game have been reported. Today, Electronic Arts put a plan into action.
The company has stated that it has halted development on further expansions for the game while it fixes online issues with the current game. Speaking with Polygon, an EA representative stated that the developers at DICE are “working non-stop” to fix the problems.
“First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us with Battlefield 4,” said the rep. “We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game – it is absolutely our number one priority. The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game.”
The rep continued, “Since Battlefield 4‘s China Rising expansion pack was already in the final stages of development by the time issues began with (the game), 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.”
The game is currently available for a number of platforms, including new game machines like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
