Surfing B4 info i found this...

It’s not news that there are numerous issues with Battlefield 4, from netcode, to crashes, and a lot of stuff in between, across all platforms. EA and DICE have recognized the seriousness of these  problems , and as a result, they’ve halted all development on future Battlefield 4  expansions  in order to work on fixing  the game .

It’s a general belief that EA  rushed Battlefield 4 past quality control in order to beat Call of Duty Ghosts to market. Battlefield 4 did succeed in beating Call of Duty Ghosts on the release date — by one week. What we got, though, was a game that was far from finished. It’s been over a month since BF4 was released, and only now is the game actually playable, after numerous client patches and over a dozen server patches.
DICE previously said that the entire team at their offices in Stockholm is  working on fixing Battlefield 4, and now the team in Los Angeles is joining in. Earlier today, the latest round of patches were released,  this time for the PS3 and PS4.

While work on all future Battlefield 4 expansion  has been halted, the China Risingexpansion was released earlier this week. It was already in the final stages of development before EA decided to focus  100% on fixing the game.

In the end, we’re glad that everyone at DICE is working to fix the game. EA should have made this announcement many weeks ago, as it would have gone a long way to calm the Battlefield 4 player base.

Here’s EA’s statement in full:

Quote“First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us with Battlefield 4. We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game – it is absolutely our #1 priority. The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game. Since Battlefield 4 China Rising expansion pack was already in the final stages of development by the time issues began with Battlefield 4, we decided to fulfill our promise to deliver it this week, but we’re not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4. We know many of our players are frustrated, and we feel your pain. We will not stop until this is right”

"The complaint goes on to describe how players and investors alike discovered that BF4 at launch was "riddled&nbspwithbugs," after which EA's stock value declined by as much as seven percent. As a result, the lawsuit alleges that "Electronic Arts would not achieve a successful holiday season 2013 rollout of Battlefield 4." Robbins Geller also calls out the news that DICE halted development on all future projects until it sorted out the Battlefield 4 issues, further hurting stock value. Basically, the lawsuit asserts that EA was aware of all the issues, that it knew BF4 would have a troubled launch, and that it talked it up anyway to sell stock at an inflated price."
