Video games have become big business in the last decade, and because of the substantial investment typically associated with them, they’ve also become a bigger target for lawsuits. Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) is the latest game publisher to feel this firsthand, as a number of law firms seek to represent EA investors that were burned by performance of Battlefield 4.
The game, which was released on Oct. 29, suffered from a number of launch issues and bugs across multiple gaming platforms. The servers supporting the multiplayer aspect of the game were also the target of a DDOS attack in November that further impeded customers’ ability to play.
