Battlefield 4 and Publisher Electronic Arts Under Investigation by Law Firm
Law firm Holzer Holzer and Fistel, LLC is currently investigating Electronic Arts for possibly misleading investors and analysts regarding the quality of Battlefield 4, which has been plagued with problems across all platforms since it was launched in late October.
The Atlanta based law firm is investigating statements made between July 24, 2013 and December 4, 2013 regarding Battlefield 4′s development, sales, and impact on EA’s violated future projects. Holzer Holzer and Fistel is also looking into whether EA violated federal securities laws during this time by making false statements about the game’s status.
The firm wants anyone who purchased EA common stock between the dates of July 24 and December4th, who suffered investment losses during the year to contact Holzer Holzer and Fistal attorney Marshall P. Dees regarding legal rights in this case. Battlefield’s servers suffered a DDOS attack, which was followed by two weeks of fixes and patches issued across all platforms to address various bugs and crashes, November 18. Last week EA announced that it would cease work on the future Battlefield 4 expansions until issues with the current state of the game have been rectified. Because of this, on December 6th, EA’s stock dropped 7.3 percent. Yesterday, DICE created a tracker page on the Battlelog forums for major problems within the game and status updates on incoming fixes.
