EA Pins Battlefield Hardline Launch Day Problems On DDoS Attack
If you had trouble playing Battlefield Hardline last night, you’re not alone. There were some issues with the servers last night, but the reasoning might not be what you assume.
According to the official Battlefield Hardline Twitter account, downtime was caused by an attack on the game’s servers.
We’ve identified the connectivity issues on Xbox One are due to DDoS attack and working to resolve. Apologies for the inconvenience.— Battlefield (@Battlefield) March 18, 2015

While Visceral promised that Battlefield Hardline would work at launch, you can’t hold a DDoS attack against the game. How it fares when not under assault is what matters, and we’ll hopefully have a better idea of that as this week progresses.
