EA stock drops after work halts on 'Star Wars Battlefront' and future DLC

Electronic Arts recently announced that work on upcoming Battlefield 4 DLC, alongside all other future DICE projects such as Star Wars Battlefront, has been halted so that the developer can focus purely on fixing stability issues within Battlefield 4. As Seeking Alpha reported on Dec 5, this news apparently has investors worried as EA’s stock has dropped over seven percent the day after the publishing giant revealed that production has been temporarily stopped on all DICE projects.

With reports of issues inside Battlefield 4 on the rise, the release of the game’s first DLC earlier this week clearly pushed the decision to focus the entire studios’ efforts on correcting its current issues after the launch of the add-on brought about even more errors. As such, fans shouldn’t expect to see any more DLC packs until the existing problems have been addressed.

As Battlefield 4 has already been released, and still selling units, Electronic Arts’ stock likely took a dive as investors are concerned with the inevitable delay of future DLC projects such as addition add-ons and the upcoming releases of Star Wars Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge 2.

DICE has already started to make progress on sorting out Battlefield 4’s issues as the developer released the previously delayed PS4 title update on Thursday.
