Good news / Bad news - Expansion packs on hold for BF4

http://www.polygon.com/2013/12/4/5175588/ea-halts-battlefield-4-expansions

Maybe enough shit has finally hit the fan. If this isn't PR spin, then great ! ( I suspect a strong element of PR bullcrap ).

Maybe a bit of a bugger if you bought Premium, but I  imagine you'd prefer a working game to timely releases of buggy map packs ?

"First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us withBattlefield 4," the spokesperson said. "We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game — it is absolutely our No. 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 their pain. We will not stop until this is right."

It's mostly PR spin doctoring. The next DLC after CR is technically Second Assault which is already out for Xbone. After that you are looking at Naval Strike sometime late spring (June) if they follow the BF3 DLC schedule.

Yeah this is pure bullshit. Most of the map packs are done where they just play with tweak and balancing and some deatils here and there. 

Nobody I know is pre buying premium again. 

I think they also feel the pain from the poor numbers of people playing China Rising.
