Law firm Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC has launched an investigation to determine whether Electronic Arts deliberately misled investors regarding "the development and sales of the Company's Battlefield 4 video game and the game's impact on EA's revenue and projects moving forward."

The investigation targets public statements the company made regarding Battlefield 4 between July 24 and December 4 of this year. The firm requests contact from shareholders who purchased EA stock between these two dates for legal consultation.

Battlefield 4 saw a troubled launch, requiring several patches to fix lingering issues across multiple platforms. EA has since prioritized Battlefield 4 bugfixing within its DICE studio, putting the team's other projects on the backburner until the game's issues can be resolved.

Holzer Holzer & Fistel previously targeted now-defunct publisher THQ in an investigation alleging that the company withheld information from investors regarding decreased sales of its uDraw tablet.
