Battlefield 4 DLC delay causes EA’s stock to dip – report

By Dave Cook, Friday, 6 December 2013 08:25 GMT

Battlefield 4 developer DICE has decided to halt development of DLC packs and Star Wars: Battlefront 3 until it fixes bugs and issues within the shooter’s multiplayer component. The move is reported to have triggered a dip in EA’s shares.

We reported on the Battlefield 4 DLC delay earlier this week. Hit the link for the full story.

Now, SeekingAlphareports that EA’s stock is down 7.3% and that the company’s investors haven’t responded well to the Battlefield 4 news in particular.

The report says that Battlefield 4 and its $50 Premium service are “without healthy sales” and suggests that EA could struggle to hit its quarterly financial forecast for December.

It also chucks in that Activision’s stock is down 2%

What do you make of the above? Is the stock dip relative to DICE’s delay? Let us know below.
