Arvind Bhatia has provided some commentary in regards to the current situation plaguing the recently released multiplatform video game, “Battlefield 4.” In an interview with the Hardware Pal website on Dec. 8, the analyst at Sterne Agee disclosed that the crashing issues will hurt Electronic Arts more and more if the development team can’t fix the problems quickly enough.

Battlefield 4” was released with several big issues across the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. The two biggest general problems are the occasional crashes and connection errors. Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment has already provided several hot fixes on the server side in addition to releasing a few big patches. The studio also promised to put off work on the future DLC expansion packs as well as upcoming titles so that all of the setbacks would be addressed.

The controversy may also hurt “Battlefield 4” in terms of sales. The sequel is already selling less than “Battlefield 3” even though it came out in two more platforms. The negative attention caused by the issues could drive potential customers away.

Along with trying to fix “Battlefield 4,” Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment is planning to move on to develop the next video games in the “Mirror’s Edge” and “Star Wars: Battlefront” franchises. Some screens from the first-person shooter are located in the slideshow to the left of this article.
