QUOTE said:The launch of EA and DICE’s Battlefield Bad Company 2 is currently being hampered by a few server issues that are preventing fans from enjoying the online multiplayer portion of the title.
With the servers having been optimised and restarted yesterday, they have today suffered from further outages that took the Xbox 360 servers offline completely earlier. To ensure fans that they are on the case, EA have released information regarding the current issues and status of on-going fixes.
The Xbox 360 servers have been the most widely affected today, and the service has been recently been restarted. It should be back online now, and will be continually monitored for any more issues.
PC servers have had an outage, and the service is currently offline and being restarted. It should again be back online, and will be monitored. EA will then check the quality of the customer experience to determine as to whether it requires further fixes.
PlayStation 3 owners shouldn’t be being affected too much, and despite a brief outage the service quickly recovered and should be functioning properly.
You’ll be pleased to know that teams are actively diagnosing issues and solutions, as well as additional services being employed to alleviate the current load as any problems occur.
Whilst EA had a major, extensive infrastructure in place to support those picking the game up at launch, peak traffic has risen to 400% higher than any previous peak amount on other Battlefield titles. Employees are continuing to work around the clock to monitor services closely, and will continually provide further updates as they become relevant.
So, fingers crossed that everything will be sorted soon!
