DICE halts “future projects” to focus on fixing Battlefield 4

Have you been playing Battlefield 4? Of course you haven’t; nobody can what with the endless list of bugs, crashes and save game losing screw ups. No matter the platform you’re on, it’s safe to say that Battlefield 4 isn’t exactly an issue-free gaming experience. And what with the recent release of the China Rising expansion pack, a whole new collection of bugs has been introduced to the game.

DICE is aware that people are miff about this. As a result, the developer has stopped development of all “future projects”, and has put everyone to work on fixing Battlefield 4. We guess that means that any work that was currently being done on Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge 2 is now on hold. What’s more, all future Battlefield 4 expansions have also been paused.

In a statement released to website Polygon, a EA DICE representative said the following:

“First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us with Battlefield 4. 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 [sic] 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.”

    Thank you DICE for continuing to be one of the few AAA gaming developers that actually still CARE for their community :) All hail the Frostbite Kingdom!

      But they still waited this long before they decided to actually fix the broken game? Now other games are suffering because they couldn’t release a product that works. Sure, they care, but it is a bit late…

        Agreed, but I think DICE deserves some much needed TLC after all the flak they’ve been taking since launch :)

    I haven’t played the china rising dlc but from what i have played of battlefield 4 I can say that the game doesn’t feel broken, I would say that it is the most fun I have had in battlefield since Vietnam. I’m glad DICE is sorting the problems out but also sad because I was really looking forward to the new mirrors edge now its just going to take longer to get here. :(

    I haven’t had much issues with the time I’ve been spending with the game. Haven’t played China Rising yet, but if it brings in more bugs then it’s a good idea to push the others back
    And now games like Mirrors Edge 2 must suffer because ya’ll had the beta so close to released, and should have moved just this one further down the line to sort out the mess many say it is currently… but it is awesome fun when it works
    Is the Virtual Public Protectors aka PC Gaming Alliance quality control … okes… supposed to…
    : Ryse (XDDD)
    againts things like this to prevent them in future?
