EA has denied shutting down official servers hosted by either itself or DICE, stating that it’ll continue to add even more.
“DICE is not shutting down servers,” an EA rep told Gamespot. “If DICE-managed servers appear unavailable, it is because they have been rented and customized by players. DICE will continue to add servers and will reserve a percentage of servers for players who prefer to connect through DICE-hosted servers.”
After an investigation by VentureBeat, it was found only 17 non-rented servers run by EA were available to the public, there was no available servers run by DICE.
