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.”
