Battlefield 4 news: DICE has had enough with bug complaints, creates external bug tracker

Frankly speaking, DICE’s newest FPS title Battlefield 4 is a massive failure for the company and a source of constant frustration for all the fans who bought the game on both current and next generation platforms. And this is since there are problems with bugs and other related issues that seem to be increasing almost every day. However, it’s good to know that DICE feels that enough is enough will these in-game bugs and the complaints related to it and has created an external tracker to hunt down all the bugs beforehand.

Battlefield 4, and it’s safe to say at this point, is probably the most troubled title release in the game’s franchise, let alone all the previous game released by DICE put together. The game has suffered due to an immense number of bugs on all the platforms it has released and, accordingly, has faced a major backlash from fans and critics. However, DICE feels that it’s time those problems ceased to exist. Good for them (and us).

“We at DICE have a long tradition of supporting our games and our community well after the release of a title. While millions of players are enjoying Battlefield 4, we are aware that some players are experiencing issues with the game,” the company wrote on it official Battlelog page.

“If you are one of them, this Battlefield 4 tracker will give you the latest updates in regards to some of the top issues we are going to fix and fan feedback we’re implementing in the game.”

“We always work with trackers for our games internally which enables us to track and fix bugs as quickly as possible. We’ve never made it external before, but this seems like a great way to keep you constantly updated on how we’re progressing,” the post adds.

While this new tracker is just the beginning of what we are hoping to be a successful campaign by DICE in eradicating all the problems and bugs from the game for all platforms, it’s still good to know that DICE is actually making its presence felt among fans with dedicated steps to make the game as hassle-free as possible.

Also, the tracker seems like a step toward gaining back some fan loyalty after EA COO Peter Moore, back in November, outright rubbished the problems with the PS4 version of the game in the wake of the infamous Error CE-34878-0 that was causing Battlefield 4 to crash on the PS4.

However, it still remains to be found out if the tracker will be of any help to fans in the near future.
