DICE not shutting down Battlefield 3 servers


Despite the rumors that emerged last week claiming that official DICE servers for the console version of EA's Battlefield 3 were disappearing, EA is reassuring fans that's simply not the case.

Responding to the allegations, an EA representative confirmed, "DICE is not shutting down servers."

"If DICE-managed servers appear unavailable, it is because they have been rented and customized by players," the representative explained. "DICE will continue to add servers and will reserve a percentage of servers for players who prefer to connect through DICE-hosted servers."

DICE introduced the Rent-a-server feature back in April.  For $25 a month, PS3 and Xbox 360 users could rent a server from DICE and customize their Battlefield 3 experience to their liking.
