Battlefield 4 players hoping to ring in the New Year with double XP are out of luck. DICE said on the game's support site today that the promotion for Battlefield Premium members has been pushed to a later date.

"The end of December 2XP event for Premium members has been postponed and will be run at a later date. Stay tuned for more information," DICE said. "We apologize for the inconvenience."

The announcement comes just a day after DICE acknowledged that Battlefield 4 players on various platforms continue to suffer from "intermittent connectivity issues." It remains unclear how widespread these issues are, and DICE has yet to provide greater clarification on the matter.

DICE has released numerous patches and updates for every version of Battlefield 4, though the PlayStation 4 version of the game appears to have been the most adversely affected. The developer continues to investigate a range of problems, including dips in frame rate, disappearing crosshairs, and rubber-banding issues, among others.

The bugs affecting Battlefield 4 are not only a headache for players, but for EA as well. A class-action lawsuit has been commenced against the publisher, claiming senior EA executives knew--and failed to disclose--that the game would be buggy.
