Report: Battlefield 4 DLC Delay Causes EA Stock To Drop

It appears that Battlefield 4’s problems are hurting everyone, even EA itself.  Yesterday we reported that EA has opted to halt development on upcoming DLC for the troubled game and future titles like Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge.  While fans may finally get a fixed game, shareholders don’t appear to happy.

SeekingAlpha, a website that helps readers decide where to invest has delivered a harsh report on EA stocks.  According to them the shareholders are not happy at the delay to the DLC packs.  This could end up hurting sales of the Battlefield Premium service and cause the publisher to miss its December quarter forecasts.  EA ended yesterday, December 5, at -7.3%.

Battlefield 4 has been a hot topic since the game launched on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.  The launch of the title did not go well with the game suffering from multiple bugs and glitches that caused the game to crash.  The most infamous bug is currently the one-hit kill and the CE error that deletes your save file.  Many of these issues launched with the PS4 and Xbox One versions.  EA and Dice have pledged to fix the game.
