It's saying that Electronic Arts has had a complicated end to 2017. While Star Wars Battlefront II was to be the publisher's biggest-ever title of the year, he turned into a ugly duckling, who was hated by everyone because of his unbalanced progression system, which clearly encouraged gamers to spend money. Even though EA quickly backed down, the damage was done: BFII sales were disappointing and the title did not convince.
