Battlefield 4 Launch Problems are 'Unacceptable,' Says EA
Andrew Wilson, CEO of EA has termed the Battlefield 4's problematic launch as "unacceptable." He further said that the issue was not due to server but was a client side problem.
"For me, the situation we had was unacceptable. For the team it was unacceptable. We have worked tirelessly since then to make sure the gameplay experience got to where it absolutely should have been at launch and we're focused on that and we continue to deliver value to that player base," said Wilson to Eurogamer.
He also added that a number of development processes were changed in view of the issue and that it will not be repeated in future.
The developer DICE had to stop all developments in DLCs until it had fixed the problems in Battlefield 4.
