Battlefield 3: Aftershock Won't Return To the App Store

By , on March 2, 2012

Battlefield 3: Aftershock, EA's free-to-play multiplayer iOS game based on the popular FPS franchise, was pulled from the App Store on 22nd February after dozens of user reviews criticised the game's controls and online performance.

EA Mobile released a statement at the time, saying it planned to re-evaluate Aftershock in response to user feedback.

Now, The Verge reports that Battlefield 3: Aftershock will not return to the App Store.

An EA representative revealed the reasons for withdrawing the title from sale to Vox Gamer:

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.
