Electronic Arts Alleged To Have Rushed BATTLEFIELD 4 Release

Read the article in full on http://www.starburstmagazine.com/ this is simply a preview.




When it comes to Electronic Arts and developer, the company is infamous for very tight deadlines. From Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 to Dragon Age 2, a number of major titles have had developers come forward and state that it was forcibly released early. Often buggy and lacking the polish of a finished title, it seems that Battlefield 4 has joined that list.

Reported on by pixelenemy.com, one of Reddit’s moderators supposedly spoke to a QA employee and responded to questions surrounding the quality of DICE’s latest title. The statements only continued the impression of EA’s poor treatment of its developers, forcing rushed deadlines to try and gain a greater profit. In this case it was in an effort to beat Call of Duty: Ghosts in releases, and have their product up a week ahead of their chief competitor. While the game was indeed tested, it did not prove to be an easy task given the deadline.
