It's not that easy. All patches go through EA quality assurance and that procedure takes up developer time with test feedback for weeks.

Honestly they can say that but it's nothing more than a crutch.  The 
same company made both games, Dice.  One game had serious game-changing 
bug(s) introduced in its last patch (the wrench), and therefore needs 
another patch to be fixed.  It would take all of 20 minutes to fix that 
bug and release a patch for it.
