EA Pulls Battlefield 3: Aftershock from App Store

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on February 24th, 2012

After a launch plagued with bugs and lag, as well as numerous negative reviews from both the users and the press, EA has chosen to remove Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the App Store. The news was broken by IGN, who obtained the following statement from EA.

"EA Mobile is committed to delivering mobile entertainment experiences that are on par with the content and quality users have come to expect from their favorite EA gaming brands. To this end, we have decided to remove Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the App Store and are currently re-evaluating the app in response to the consumer feedback we've received. We thank all the fans who have downloaded the game to date."

We're glad to hear that EA has done the responsible thing and pulled the title. Even though the game has done some damage by being available but virtually unplayable for two weeks, we're hopeful that EA can figure out what went wrong and get the game back up in a timely manner. As yet there is no word if users who already downloaded the game will have their purchases refunded or if they will be compensated in some other manner.
