DICE is unhappy with the server performance for Battlefield 4, which almost six months post-launch, is still causing problems for players. Addressing player complaints about “rubber-banding” issues, DICE claims that they will be upgrading their server hardware “as soon as possible”, in a post on the Battlefield Blog.
Apparently, EA will need to invest a little more cash in their servers to deliver a better experience for Battlefield 4 players.
DICE did not give any timetable as to when Battlefield 4 players should expect these server upgrades, but “reducing lag for these players is absolutely a TOP priority for us to solve and we expect to have the solution very soon,” according to the post.
Battlefield 4 has proven to be a very problematic game for DICE and EA. Connection issues and crashes plagued the launch across all platforms. So much so, that DICE delayed their downloadable content to concentrate on fixing the issues. While many of the issues have subsided, players still have many complaints about the game.
DICE recently launched the Battlefield 4 Naval Strike DLC for Battlefield Premium subscribers.
