EA Takes Battlefield: Aftershock Off App Store

The realities of game development often consign a promising and eagerly anticipated game to limbo and eventual cancellation.  But we tend to forget that sometimes there’s a very good reason why that happens. Battlefield 3: Aftershock, EA’s companion app to its intended Call of Duty killer is purported to suffer from myriad problems including crashes, control issues and huge lag during online play.

“EA Mobile is committed to delivering mobile entertainment experiences that are on par with the content and quality users have come toexpect from their favorite EA gaming brands,” a statement from the publisher said.

“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.”
