Former DICE man blames EA for the current Battlefield 4 woes
One former employee of DICE has indicated what he believes to the the reason behind the problems with Battlefield 4 are a result of EA's decisions and not DICE's work.
In a series of tweets the former DICE gameplay designer @stormonster who now works at Rovio indicated that it was 'corporate' pressure that has led to Battlefield 4 being released in the state that it was.
“It is getting better, but too much is broken and needs fixing. Not enough time to fix it all,” he wrote. “Outcry over a retweet, response,” he continued, “I support the devs at DICE fully and acknowledge their hard work and efforts.”
”Problem is higher than devs!” he added. “Thing is – for consumers, it doesn't matter where the problem lies. But yup, corporate level and dev takes a hit.”
DICE has suspended work on all other projects from Mirror's Edge and Star Wars: Battlefront to the next two years worth of DLC for Battlefield 4 in order to try and fix the issues.
