EA promised PS3 owners a free copy of Battlefield 1943 when they picked up Battlefield 3. When they didn’t come through, they upset a lot of gamers, both for the bait-and-yank and for the shoddy manner with which it was announced.
If you were somehow still holding out hope that the long delayed Battlefield 1943 for the PC would ever become more than a promise, give up now. Developer DICE has finally officially canceled that game (and another Battlefield project).
Companies rarely, if ever, release sales figures for digital game sales. Makes compiling charts, and applauding records, difficult! We do know one thing, however: EA’s Battlefield 1943 is the most popular console downloadable title ever made.
