Electronic Arts revealed that DICE has stopped working on all projects, including Star Wars Battlefront, in an attempt to focus on sorting out the issues that Battlefield 4 has been experiencing which have been leading to numerous game crashes. The developer’s decision to stop all other work to fix the problematic Battlefield 4 also extends to all future game development. As EA confirmed to IGN on Dec 4, work on Star Wars Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge has been put on hold until Battlefield 4’s problems have been addressed.

It was announced that DICE would be resurrecting the Battlefront series shortly after EA acquired the exclusive gaming rights to the Star Wars franchise. In fact, the upcoming DICE developed game as the first title that the publishing giant revealed as part of their licensing deal with Disney. Star Wars Battlefront has not yet been given a release date. Like many upcoming Electronic Arts titles, the upcoming game is being created using DICE’s Frostbite 3 development engine.

All other DICE projects will remain in suspension until Battlefield 4’s issues have been fixed. The game’s first add-on released earlier this week but fans may have to wait longer for more as DICE’s decision to halt development work also extends to short-term projects such as further Battlefield 4 DLC. On Tuesday, a title update that was expected to deploy for the PS4 version of the game was delayed for further testing. The entire development studio has now been given the task to improve the game.

Battlefield 4 is out now on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
