EA Stock Dips by 7.3 Percent Following Battlefield 4 DLC Delay
Both BF4 and Premium service “without healthy sales” at the moment.
Following the announcement of Battlefield 4’s DLC and Star Wars: Battlefront development being delayed in order to allow for DICE to fix the number of bugs that its multiplayer has faced, EA’s stock has apparently gone down in response.
According to SeekingAlpha, stock is down by 7.3 percent and investors aren’t all that happy about the delay. As of now, Battlefield 4 and its Premium Service, which retails for $50 and allows for early access to DLC, are “without healthy sales”. Considering how well the game has been doing, especially in the UK, its certainly interesting to hear that EA will struggle to meet its upcoming financial forecast for this quarter.
DICE has released several updates for Battlefield 4’s multiplayer in the past few weeks due to crashing issues and server errors across all platforms. Have you noticed any difference in the service within the past few weeks? Let us know in the comments below.
