Class Action Lawsuit Against EA and Battlefield 4 Fails To Take Off

'Meritless' lawsuit has apparently dissolved.

Last year, EA launched Battlefield 4, the eagerly anticipated fourth installment in DICE’s premier FPS franchise, and all hell break loose- the game was fundamentally broken, with bugs and glitches galore, that not only caused game balance issues, but actively inhibited progress, deleted single and multiplayer progress and save files, corrupted game data, or just refused to let players play.

With the game being released in such a pitiable state (EA and DICE even acknowledged this when they vowed not to release any more DLC for the game unless they had patched the game up entirely), a furious Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP- a high profile law firm- initiated a class action lawsuit against the company.

But that law suit seems to have gone nowhere. Gamespot reports that all mention of the case is gone from Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd’s website, and that despite Gamespot’s best attempts to reach out to the firm for comments, they did not hear back.

On its part, EA has always maintained innocence- “We intend to aggressively defend ourselves, and we’re confident the court will dismiss the complaint in due course,” they told Gamespot in December.

With the debacle of Battlefield 4 largely behind them now (along with the debacle of SimCity. And of NBA Live 14. And of FIFA 14. Man, 2013 was not a good year for EA, was it?), it’s probably just as well the lawsuit’s dissolved now. Maybe now EA can use all that time and money they would have spent on legal processes and actually focus on shipping a finished product next time around.
