Battlefield: Hardline Hit by Connectivity Issues on Xbox One; Developers Working to Resolve Online Problems
Following its early trial through EA Access and its release yesterday, Battlefield: Hardline has brought its own brand of cops vs. robbers justice to console and PC owners everywhere – while the launch has gone smoothly so far, those on Xbox One have experienced some slight hangups and delays.
After the launch of Battlefield: Hardline yesterday across PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, developer Visceral Games took to Twitter to address reports that users on Xbox One have been experiencing connectivity issues with the game’s online components, though no other platforms have had significant issues identified so far.
Visceral Games posted through the official Battlefield Twitter account that the studio has identified a DDoS attack as the culprit behind the connectivity issues on Xbox One. With distributed denial-of-service attacks bringing overwhelming amounts of traffic to online servers and high-proifile attacks occurring over the holidays last year on both Xbox Live and PSN, Visceral Games assured users that the studio is working to resolve connectivity issues on the Xbox One version of the game, and offers its “apologies for the inconvenience.”
Battlefield: Hardline is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
We’ve identified the connectivity issues on Xbox One are due to DDoS attack and working to resolve. Apologies for the inconvenience.
