EA-owned developer DICE has said that it’s on top of the technical problems which have slightly dented Battlefield 3′s launch.
Gamers on Xbox 360 and PC have been having issues when playing online, while at launch there was also problems connecting to EA’s Origin servers.
However, speaking to Kotaku, the studio says that things are starting to improve.
“We are happy to report that PS3 and PC players experienced server stability all weekend, and Xbox 360 servers are at 95 per cent and climbing.
“We’ve turned a corner. A small percentage of people are experiencing intermittent volatility which we are addressing. We believe that the major issues are behind us, but our online teams will not be happy until we’re at 100 per cent. We continue to work on solving for each issue.”
It seems that the Xbox 360 version in particular was having a tough time, however DICE are claiming to have found the route of the problem and have since solved the issue.
“There are a number of different factors impacting server connectivity on Xbox 360. It is a particularly complex server architecture and we continue to work with Microsoft to improve connectivity. We are gamers, too, and understand how frustrating it is not to be able to play the game without interruption.”
No doubt the millions of people trying to connect at once did not help DICE’s cause, however while we feel that the demand should have been anticipated, there are usually a few issues which pop up.
