So Rockstar aren’t the only ones under the lawsuit radar. There is a law firm that is looking at the possibilities of suing EA over Battlefiled 4, claiming that EA misled investors over the condition of the game. Just days before the game was released, several EA executives offloaded almost $5 million in EA stock.
“Another law firm, Bower Piven, has filed the same class-action lawsuit, and they’re seeking for an EA investor that has lost at least $200,000 on EA stock purchased over the past few months. EA’s shares have been very volatile lately, due to the problems of Battlefield 4.”
There is no doubt that all the problems that Battlefield 4 launched with have resulted in lost sales. The game was practically unplayable when it launched, and only now, after almost two months and a dozen patches, can it actually be played. But still is short of its usual standards.
“However, it seems that these lawsuits piling up are from lawyers looking to make a quick buck on the back of EA’s troubles. And for the gamer, the lawsuits and the result of them won’t have any effect — the lawsuits are from investors who feel misled by EA.”
EA has previously said that they will fight every lawsuit in court and they called them “meritless”.
