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.
