About a week ago, we reported that EA had pulled Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the iTunes App Store after there were numerous complaints about its gameplay and overall quality. The publisher released a statement which seemed to indicate that they might be making changes in order to satisfy their customers. Now if you have been looking forward to a remade and improved Battlefield 3: Aftershock, you might be in for some disappointment, as the company has recently announced that development and support for the game will be suspended.
“In the interest of bringing consumers only the highest level of quality mobile entertainment, EA Mobile has decided to suspend development and support of Battlefield 3: Aftershock and refocus its resources on other titles. The Aftershock servers will be live through March 31st, 2012, and customers who have already downloaded the game can continue to play until then.”
We guess given that it was free to begin with, we can’t really complain or ask for refunds (unless EA can refund players their time), but for those who still have the app and who might have actually enjoyed the game, you’ve basically got a month worth of game time before it shuts down.
