DC Universe Online to merge servers

Sunday, 1st May 2011 23:42 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sony Online Entertainment has announced it will merge all of its DC Universe Online servers into four “super servers”.

The announcement on the DCUO website took an upbeat tone, and put the decision down to queue times on existing servers.

After the merger, only four servers will remain – one each for PC and PlayStation 3, in Europe and the US.

Testing of the new system will bgegin next month, with the official merger to follow thereafter. SOE can’t confirm timing but is calling the merger one of it’s “top priorities”.

We’ll forbear to comment, and merely bite anxiously at our nails.

DC Universe Online launched for PC and PS3 in January this year.

Thanks, Massively.

    I loved the game – but even I have to admit it was woefully short of endgame content. An endgame that they purposely allowed you to get to blindingly fast. In so many other ways though, it really shows the way forward for a console MMO.

    TBH, a merger is needed for people to get into public groups without waiting an age. Hopefully the community can sustain itself and grow slowly and allow time for the much needed content to come over the next year or so.

    Will they all be PvP then? Because if so, that’ll destroy the game. Not that there is anyone left playing for it to be ruined for that is.
