Battlefield 3 on iOS pulled for Quality Concerns

by | @AttackFanboy | on February 22, 2012

Electronic Arts has recently removed Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the iOS App Store.  As the mobile counterpart to the exceptional Battlefield 3 on consoles and PC, Battlefield 3: Aftershock was free game that was sponsored by  a recently released military film.  As you would assume, with anything having the Battlefield name tied to it, there was a lot of interest in the title.  Upon release, what gamers found was a bug riddled mess of game, that likely wasn’t worthy of the name “Battlefield 3”.

In response to the overwhelmingly bad user reviews and issues pointed out, EA has removed the game from the App Store and issued the following statement.

“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. 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.”

A more fully featured, and working Battlefield 3 spin-off is slated for release sometime in 2012.  Hopefully this bad publicity doesn’t put users off when the more official release hits mobile devices.
