Through a post on the official website of EA, the community manager Stratford revealed that Battlefield 4, a title developed by DICE in 2013, he has seen a disproportionate increase of users in the Americas region.
For this reason, the company has decided to increase the capacity of the servers in the US West zone, so that players no longer run into connection problems or matchmaking.
” We were blown away by your excitement and reactions to the recent Battlefield 2042 reveal. Since that day, many of you have returned to Battlefield 4, to get a taste of limitless guerrillas. We monitored your experience and noticed long wait times in the US West region, much longer than in the rest of the world. Good news: we have increased the capacity of servers in this region: you can expect shorter waiting times. “.
A quick look at SteamDB reveals that, indeed, the number of Battlefield 4 players soared in June, peaking on June 13, with 11,801 players.
Although in a minor form and not high enough to increase server capacity, even the most recent Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5 are seeing an increase in players.
Of course, the fact that Battlefield 4 is currently free to all Amazon / Twitch Prime subscribers must have contributed to such high numbers. Speaking of which, if you haven’t already done so, you can redeem the game until June 21st.
The excitement and hype surrounding Battlefield 2042 did its predecessors good. We hope that the enthusiasm will be fully rewarded at the launch of the title next October 22 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC.
