DICE halts everything to fix Battlefield 4

by on05 December 2013

All hands on deck to deal with the issues

DICE has announced that it is halting all new development on Battlefield 4 expansion packs and other “future projects” while it works to resolve the issues it has with Battlefield 4. The news comes as a bit of a surprise, but the studio wants supporters to know that it is their absolute priority one to fix the game.

To that end DICE has pulled developers off of other projects to assist in fixing the issues. The release of the China Rising expansion pack has created new issues in addition to those that already existed. While some might wonder why DICE didn’t just hold the release of the expansion pack, China Rising was already in the final stages of development when the full understanding of the Battlefield 4 issues came to light.

DICE does understand that players are frustrated and the developers feel their pain as well. The release of the China Rising expansion pack has created even more issues and DICE admits that the game is a mess on every platform. Still DICE is committed to fixing the issues and suggests that players watch the Battlefield 4 Control Room forums for the latest up to the minute information on what is going on.

While we can understand that things look bad, it is good that DICE is committed to fixing Battlefield 4 before moving on to other projects. We predict that they will get it right with the entire company working on the issues. The problem is that it is going to take time and players are not likely to be patient while DICE fixes this mess.
