Don't get why they can't just update BF3/dlc/whatever
I think once a developer or series gets sucked into a huge corporation it isn't so much about supporting games or any sort of longevity. Everything is put on a schedule, games run their course then new product is pushed onto the consumers. BF3 has run it's course, the last DLC hit, sales figures were (likely) met, and now they are moving onto the next big thing.
It's not about babying a game, patching, new content forever, its about selling it while it's popular then getting something new and exciting out. :/
I'm more fond of the Bethesda style of publishing games, longer between releases but huge modding communities that give the games much longevity. I don't think we will be seeing any love like that from EA again.
