Luckily at least 800,000+ people are smart enough to realize money doesn't grow on trees. Creating maps the scale of BF3 means employing artists. Programmers as well in the case of close quarters (new destructible physics etc.) and ongoing support. Then designers and support staff on top. The game has been out for ~8 months now, the initial revenue hit has dissipated, if you want them to maintain support for the game, provide updates and content, then you pay for it.
Or, use your entitled voice, whine about prices, make them stop DLC and watch content support for the game drop 1 month after launch.
Honestly, their "support" isn't that great. Think about how long the dart glitch went on for, and every time you complain about something (a crash or graphical glitch for example), you get a free 25% off coupon for origin and your standard cut and paste "Is your game updated? Have you tried restarting the game?", rather than actual help.
The content is good and its nice to see the game being extended, but saying they are doing it so they have a reason to maintain support is just false. It's purely to keep making money without having to an entirely create a new game.
