EA voted out of Consumerist's Worst Company in America poll

New, 88 comments

Electronic Arts has been voted out of the running for The Consumerist's Worst Company in America poll for 2014, ending the possibility of the company winning the title three years in a row.

The company was pushed out of the running by Time Warner Cable, which won out the race bracket with 51.2 percent over EA's 48.8 percent.

This past fall, EA and its studio DICE came under fire when highly-anticipated shooter Battlefield 4 launched with technical issues that prevented players from using its online multiplayer. The game has continued to be plagued with problems and DICE has continued to roll out updates for the game across all platforms.

After winning the 2013 Worst Company in America poll — EA's Peter Moore wrote that the company could "do better" and would strive to do so.

"I'll be the first to admit that we've made plenty of mistakes," Moore wrote at the time. "These include server shut downs too early, games that didn't meet expectations, missteps on new pricing models and most recently, severely fumbling the launch of SimCity. We owe gamers better performance than this."

Still in Consumerist's poll is Microsoft, which is currently up against AT&T for voting.

Polygon has reached out to EA for comment and will share more information as we have it.
