EA Pulls its 'Battlefield 3' iOS Game for Lack of Quality

Posted Thu Feb 23, 2012 at 07:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

With the amount of broken of just terrible games on the app store as it is, it's nice to see a developer do something about it.

Games made for the iPhone aren't always of the highest quality. In fact, it's probably a safe bet to say that a majority of them are pretty terrible. EA's 'Battlefield 3: Aftershock' definitely was. It had a 2.5 star rating with comments raging about the poor controls and glitches throughout the game.

In response to this, EA has pulled the game from the App Store. They made a game, the game was crap and they pulled the game - it makes so much sense but it's something you'll almost never see. After all, the 'Battlefield' brand will bring in app sales whether the game is good or not.

EA Mobile is going to take another look at the game and see if there's something they can do to fix it. A statement from the company says that they are "currently re-evaluating the app in response to the consumer feedback we've received."
