Battlefield 4 class action suit never fires first shot

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd never appointed a lead plaintiff in the case

This is sure to increase the Electronic Arts (EA) legal team’s gamer score: An attempted class action lawsuit against the company for problems surrounding the release of Battlefield 4 has stalled before it could ever get off the ground.

In December, securities law firm Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP filed a complaint in U.S. district court that claimed EA willfully misled purchasers into buying the game despite knowing that it had multiple issues upon release. The game launched on Oct. 29 with a number of bugs, and the game’s servers were hit with a DDOS attack in November that hampered customers’ ability to play even further.
