Server capacity increased for Battlefield 4 due to influx of players following Battlefield 2042 reveal

EA has increased the server capacity for Battlefield 4 due to an influx of players following the Battlefield 2042 reveal.

Thanks to the reveal of Battlefield 2042, the amount of players itching for some modern combat has surged, causing the servers for Battlefield 4 to reach capacity, making queue times far longer in certain regions.

To stop any more issues from coming about due to the deluge, EA has taken steps to help combat long queues (thanks, Neowin).

"We were absolutely blown away by your excitement and reactions to the recent Battlefield 2042 reveal," said EA community manager Straatford.

"Since then, many of you have jumped back into Battlefield 4 to already get a taste of the return to all-out-warfare. We’ve been monitoring your experience and noticed queue times in the US West region were far longer than in other regions. Good news, we’ve increased server capacity for this region – you can expect less waiting, and more playing.

"We’ll continue monitoring queue times and will make further adjustments as necessary."

Our first look at Battlefield 2042 gameplay was shown during the Xbox + Betsheda E3 2021 showcase, and it showed off 128-player multiplayer on the new Conquest.

The game is out October 22 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
