EA halts BF4 DLC roll out, wants to get the game working first

Battlefield 4 is a jumbled mess across multiple platforms right now, so EA stops work on DLC for now

I've had issues with Battlefield 4, don't get me wrong, but when it works, it's an amazing game. Well, there are issues plaguing most platforms - next-gen consoles included - and EA wants to get it all fixed before it continues working on its DLC for BF4.




EA has put its foot down, with future expansions not being worked on until the problems with Battlefield 4 are a thing of the past. It's good to see EA kicking ass this early into the game, but these problems wouldn't be here if they didn't rush the game to release. EA said in its statement:


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 #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 your pain. We will not stop until this is right.


EA's new boss, Andrew Wilson, has come out and publicly apologized for the issues in BF4, where he said: "We have had our challenges with stability issues on Battlefield 4, and the DICE team is 100 per cent focused on understanding and resolving the problems that some players have been having."
