Battlefield 3 Console Servers will be DOWN today due to migration and maintenance
DICE and EA has just announced on Battlelog Blog that Battlefield 3 console servers will be down today due to server migration. The downtime will begin at 10 p.m. Pacific tonight, and is estimated to last approx. Eight hours (so this means this Battlefield 3 server downtime will end at 6 a.m. PST on Tuesday).
On Battlelog, DICE said, "Our Battlefield 3 console server migration will start at this time,"
"Online gameplay will not be available on consoles during this operation. We will message once servers are starting to spin back up."
The blog post also carried details regarding server rental service in the South U.S. region:
"For the large majority of players renting a Battlefield 3 server, our server migration is a completely transparent operation except for the planned maintenance. If you are currently renting a console server in the South U.S. region, the following applies:
- Your current lease period will run its full course with no change whatsoever.
- After the server migration you will not be able to extend your current lease or start a new lease in the South U.S. region we recommend that you use the East U.S. or West U.S. region instead."
