EA's recently pulled Battlefield 3 app won't be returning due to an incurable case of crappiness.
You may recall that last month EA removed its free Battlefield 3 spinoff from the App store in order to "re-evaluate" the game in response to overwhelmingly negative customer feedback. EA promised a "more comprehensive," (I.E: working) version of the game would return to the App store later this year. That plan seems to have been re-evaluated as well, according to a new announcement from EA:
"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 game's servers will remain active until March 31st, for those of you with an inhuman degree of tolerance for fundamentally broken gaming experiences. We didn't review the game here at The Escapist, but former news room contributor, Mike Thompson, did pen a review of the game for Gamezebo, in which he called it an "insult," "beyond awful" and a "colossal middle finger from Electronic Arts to mobile players."
