Will Battlefront have dedicated servers?



Continuing the discussion from Strats Weekly + Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Giveaway - 21 September 2015 - 9:00pm EDT:

I think people are misinterpreting this. Jamie Keen said:

“We’ll still have dedicated servers. Absolutely, It’s one of the hallmarks of making sure we deliver an unparalleled online [service] for the game.”

Most people are taking that to mean that, for example, we could have our own battlefront.strats.co server like you would for cs:go, etc. I don’t think that’s what they meant.

I think what’s being said here is that they’re going to use their own EA/Star Wars/Disney/whatever server infrastructure and not rely on Sony or Microsoft.

Much less exciting news.


Bummer, I was hoping we could make our own.

Even more important, I was hoping they would have a PC version for sale with the Han Solo mini-fridge like the X-Box and Playstation will have.
