Publisher EA claims previous reports were inaccurate

Electronic Arts has denied reports suggesting it had removed dedicated servers hosting Battlefield 3.

It was previously reported that all servers had ‘vanished’ from the online list.

But publisher EA claims the reports were not accurate.

"Dice is not shutting down servers," an EA representative told GameSpot.

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