Plagued by server outages in the hours after launch Battlefield 3 has got off to a somewhat rocky start with developer DICE stating via its official blog: “The overwhelming response [to Battlefield 3] has been as humbling as it is appreciated. Battlefield 3 is the fastest selling game in EA’s history, but is not without its ups and downs.”
The statement added: “Despite the fact that millions of people are online playing Battlefield 3, some of you are experiencing issues. The DICE team, as well as the many EA groups that support this historic launch, have all been working around the clock.
“We’ve deployed a number of server-side updates in our first week that have solved a number of the primary connectivity challenges, and have accelerated our rollout of the number of Hardcore servers.”
