EA Abandoning Battlefield 3: Aftershock, No Future iOS Titles Planned

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on March 5th, 2012

Last month we reported that EA had pulled Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the App Store following reports of large-scale bugs and crashing. We have now confirmed from an EA spokesperson that the game will not be returning to the App Store, and the Aftershock servers will be shut down on March 31, 2012.

"In the interest of bringing consumers only the highest level of quality mobile entertainment, EA Mobile has decided to suspend development and support of Battlefield 3: Aftershock and refocus its resources on other titles," said EA in a statement. "The Aftershock servers will be live through March 31st, 2012, and customers who have already downloaded the game can continue to play until then."

The EA rep we spoke to also confirmed that the company has no immediate plans for future Battlefield titles on iOS. So anyone hoping for a mobile fix of the shooter franchise is out of luck for at least the near future.

Battlefield 3 Aftershock Details And Screenshots Released

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 1st, 2011

On a regular basis, I'm wowed by the impressive graphics we're seeing on the latest iOS games. None more so than in the case of Battlefield 3 Aftershock from EA. It's only in an early alpha state but already it's looking pretty amazing for an iPhone or iPad game.

Scant details have been released so far but there will be a single player mode as well as multiplayer fun to be had. EA promises ragdoll physics and a combat engine built around facing up against hordes of enemies in wave formations, hopefully providing an experience ideal for the brief game sessions many get with their iOS devices.

Intriguingly there will also be connectivity with Battlefield 3 on other platforms with achievements and weapon unlocks suggested to be the result of this. As a fan of the BattleLog available for PC and console gamers, I've got my fingers crossed that the iOS version has some kind of connection to this.

No release date has been announced other than sometime this Winter. For now, take in the delights of these screenshots that look darn impressive for any iOS device.
