On Twitter, DICE chief software engineer (and now chief back-end engineer at Epic Games) Joakim Bodin stated that the game “didn’t have a lot of a chance” to be suitable at launch. The previous developer wrote this exactly:
This game has had many iterations and the deadline hasn’t changed much, so It didn’t have a lot of chances to be great on release He is. I’m proud that I fought so hard to make this game include full cross-play, progression, and (mostly) trading. Your online system will serve you well for future titles.
