Following on from the problems EA has been experiencing with its server hardware running their new Simcity game and particularly the SimCity servers and accessibility over the past few days.
EA has today announced in a press release that its currently preparing to add new SimCity servers over the weekend, and is putting all its efforts into solving the issues with SimCity servers gamers are experiencing trying to login and play the latest SimCity game since its launch earlier this week.
Maxis general manager Lucy Bradshaw explained a little more about the SimCity servers status in a statement today:
“Thousands of players across the world are playing and having a good experience – in fact, more than 700,000 cities have been built by our players in just 24 hours. But many are experiencing server instability and consequently, the rollout in North America has been challenging. It’s also now evident that players across Europe and Asia are experiencing the same frustration.
Our priority now is to quickly and dramatically increase the number and stability of our SimCity servers and, with that, the number of players who can simultaneously access the game. We added servers today, and there will be several more added over the weekend. We’re working as hard as possible to make sure everyone gets to experience the amazing game we built in SimCity.”
Bradshaw’s statement came in response to several specific questions sent to her by the Kotaku games website.
