Battlefield 4: DICE temporarily ceasing work on expansions to fix the game

DICE have stopped working on Battlefield 4 Expansions and Star Wars: Battlefront 3 effective immediately to ensure the game is up to standard and completely fixed.

This is the second major EA release this year that has launched with major issues. Back in March, SimCity was full of problems, some of which have still not been fixed.

At DICE, all hands are on deck, working around the clock to get Battlefield 4 up to expected standard. Speaking with Polygon, a DICE spokesperson has admitted fixing the game is the developer’s ‘number one priority’.

In regards to the recent release of the China Rising expansion pack, a spokesperson had this to say…

“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.”

The expected PS4 update has been delayed indefinitely. An update for the PC version of the game was released yesterday as planned.

China Rising is only available for Premium Members and those who preordered the game. It will be available to everyone on December 17th. The expansion has already run into some issues.

Future expansion, Second Assault is a timed exclusive for Xbox One. Additional expansions Naval Strike, Dragon’s Teeth and Final Stand are expected in 2014.

The Spokesperson advised players keep up to date with the Battlefield 4 Control Room for further updates.
