Battlefield Hardline Server Issues are Due to DDoS Attack, EA is Fixing Them

By   /   Mar 18, 2015

In the past couple of hours, did the Battlefield Hardline servers make you feel reminiscent of Battlefield 4? Well, they did that to many of the fans who were trying to get through and faced disastrous connectivity issues.

For Electronic Arts’ relief, this was not a fault at their end (at least not completely), it has been confirmed by the officials that the connectivity issues that you have been facing were due to hacker groups!

First off, Electronic Arts took to the official Twitter profile of the Battlefield series with a confirmation post that assured fans not to worry:

We are aware of [Battlefield Hardline] connectivity issues on Xbox One. We’ve got our best on it and hope to resolve soon. Thanks for your patience.

However, this was soon followed by a clearer tweet with details on the type of issues that the servers were facing. Unsurprisingly, it is one of the old DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service Attacks) brought to you by one of the many hacker group who want to get something out of this.

We’ve identified the connectivity issues on Xbox One are due to DDoS attack and working to resolve. Apologies for the inconvenience.

I must add, however, that in comparison to the bumpy launches of previous games in the series, this wasn’t as bad. Although that could be due to a smart decision EA took to spread the release across multiple dates, reduce the risk of servers getting overwhelmed and then find a middle ground that would allow things to run smoothly.

Battlefield Hardline released in North America on March 17, it is slated for a release in the European Union tomorrow and in the United Kingdom on the day after that.
