A number of investors are livid with EA about the performance of their latest installment of Battlefield 4. The lawsuit alleges that EA's sales projections and other statements regarding Battlefield 4 did not represent the company's full knowledge.The plaintiffs believe that EA was aware of the problems with Battlefield 4 and chose not to disclose them. Therefore misleading their investors.
Despite gamers past enthusiasm for the product, since it's release gamers have been ultimately disappointed with the product. As a result that DICE had to halt all progress on all future DLC development and turn their attention back to the failing multi-player experience.
DICE is trying desperately to improve the game experience, even releasing an update on the Xbox One this week. Still gamers are having difficulty getting into and even staying in multi-player matches. This just goes to show that even when you have a good game, multi-player still has to be up to par.
Investor's are angry because EA's stock has fallen more than 28 points, prompting lawsuits. The investors even believe that EA was aware of the bugs being encountered in multi-player sessions.
EA has issued a statement saying that they "intend to aggressively defend ourselves, and we re confident that the court will dismiss the complaint in due course." While Battlefield has been disappointing to say the least. The problem is proving that EA was aware of the bugs and hid information that would allow investors to see how badly the game was progressing.
