Battlefield 3: Server Problems Due To Lots Of Players At Launch

Battlefield 3 Origin Pre-Orders Include September Beta Access

During a financial call today, John Riccitiello, Chief Executive Officer at EA, took time to laud the launch of Battlefield 3, saying, that the battle-heavy FPS "is off to a fantastic start on sales and quality," but he also addressed the somewhat rocky launch of the title. According to EA, the internet reports of servers being slow or down were due, quite simply, to the game's sales.

"In terms of network services, we've had unprecedented peaks," Riccitiello said. Those peaks caused parts of network to experience outages, according to EA.  Do not fret, however. EA says they've "got a handle on it," and are prepared for the launch of the game in Europe.

If you're concerned that the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic's launch will suffer similar problems, EA would like you not to worry. During the call, they pointed out that the no-console nature of the Star Wars MMO (and the already-in-progress betas) should keep things stable.

"[Star Wars's The Old Republic]'s has a PC only configuration that we have full control over," EA assured its investors.
