Battlefield 3 servers hit by DDoS attack

Server outages also impact social tracking service Battlelog

Battlefield 3’s and Battlelog’s servers are suffering outages following Distributed Denial of Service attacks. The Battlefield 3 status site says PC servers are currently “stressed” while console ones are up and running, although this has yet to be confirmed on the game’s social channels and official forums, where the following sticky message still reads:

“The current Battlefield 3 outages are a result of activity that appears to be aimed at overwhelming our back-end infrastructure. We are working on a variety of solutions to address this problem and are focused on resolution as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and support.

“Moving forward, we will provide the most up to date information to the community here. We are incredibly disappointed by these activities and the impact they are having on all of our ability to enjoy BF3, thank you for your patience as we work to resolve these issues.”

In light of the ongoing problems, DICE has postponed a Battlefield 3 double XP event previously planned for May 9-13 until a later date.
