Battlefield 1943 demand underestimated; new servers coming online
Shunning sleep and obviously taking a break from server monitoring, DICE’s Gordon Van Dyke has popped up on the official EA forums stating that the demand for Battlefield 1943 has exceeded everyone at EA and DICE’s expectations.
Don’t worry, however, as the network guys are now scrambling to add more servers to cater for the thousands of people currently trying to get online.
With the PS3 version launching today, DICE are also taking a leaf from the 360 book and are putting in place more servers from the getgo than originally planned.
Gordon claims that they have the “full support of EA” in this matter and that teams are working around the clock to meet the demand.
Success can be a terrible thing sometimes but word around the camp-fire is that Battlefield 1943 is definitely well worth the wait. Here’s hoping the new servers alleviate the connectivity issues and everyone can get a chance to experience what some are referring to as one of the best online multi-player games ever.
If you can get online of course.
