DICE has halted all work on everything but Battlefield 4
until the issues plaguing the game have been resolved, publisher EA has claimed. DICE is currently working on the Mirror's Edge reboot
and the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront
game, as well as the remaining Battlefield 4 expansions
. What this means for those games and the state of the developer's pipeline remains to be seen.
"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," an EA representative told IGN
. "We know many of our players are frustrated, and we feel your pain. We will not stop until this is right."
As for releasing China Rising
, the first of five major expansion packs planned for Battlefield 4
, during these ongoing issues, EA told IGN the expansion was "already in the final stages of development by the time issues began with Battlefield 4
," so the company "decided to fulfill our promise to deliver it this week."
EA has issued several patches for Battlefield 4
since its launch, including a fix for the one-hit kill glitch
that has been seen in the PC version – the same patch that has since been delayed for PS4
– and improvements to the still-a-bit-shaky online stability
of the PS4 game. As a result of issues across all platforms, DICE decided to reward those who've stuck with Battlefield 4
through the hard times with a double XP fan appreciation event
, which ends tomorrow.
