It hasn’t been an easy launch for EA and Dices highly anticipated fps Battlefield 3, with network outages and battlelog accounts not working, to massive lag and the inability to actually get a game.
Frank Gibeau (EA Labels president) said:
“In terms of the network services, we have had unprecedented and historic peaks in terms of the activity that we’re getting from the Battlefield community and players, and it’s caused parts of our networks to experience some outages.”
he also added:
“We were very rapid in our response there. We were able to get those back up. We feel like we’ve really gotten a handle on it now, and the service as it scales to the release in Europe this weekend, should be solid.”
Now this might have something to do with the fact that since it North American launch BF3 has shipped over 10 million copies.
