DICE has now officially confirmed that they have not yet made a decision about Battlefield 5 rent server program or RSP . Server Rental is something that the players have wanted to know about for a long time.
Renting a server in Battlefield games means longer life for the game and allows players to have endless fun even after years of release. This is the sole reason why you can still see some servers online in previous Battlefield games including Battlefield 4, Battlefield 3, and even Battlefield 2 from the series.
The inclusion of it in every previous game is also a reason why everyone wants to have it in BF5 but EA DICE never gave a proper response to it. Recently, community manager Dan Mitre finally responded to the most asked questions but in return we have a got a rather disappointing answer.
Community Manager Dan Mitre said:
In regards specifically to RSP, I’m going to keep it simple. You haven’t seen an update in our direction with RSP because we haven’t made a full decision internally whether or not we can deliver it.
RSP needs to meet standards and your expectations with the tools we provide – that takes development resources. It also needs to make economical development sense – we can’t introduce a feature that ends up costing more to keep maintained than it returns (I know that statement will open up more debate, and I encourage that, but this is the reality of the situation). In other words, we don’t want to impact development resources of main game Quality of Life commitment and upcoming content by routing team bandwidth to RSP development. There’s also financial implications here that go well beyond my remit. Let’s tackle the former before we tackle the latter.
In the end, Dan Mitre said that the inclusion of rented servers in the game is not officially off the table so he suggests us to wait for an official statement on the decision.
Our teams need to weigh this carefully and either commit fully to the service or not provide it at all – and you need an official statement on what that decision is once it’s been made.
Until the decision comes out, we will have to depend on the official servers of the game. Aside from that, we have another bad news related to microtransactions in Battlefield 5.
According to Amazon, pre-orders for Battlefield Currency will start soon. After all the promises that Electronic Arts has made, it will be a huge disappointment to see notorious microtransactions come back especially after the backlash of its presence in Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Battlefield V sales numbers are not that impressive that’s why EA has revised its projected revenue for FY 2019.
BF5 is now available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
