We are patiently waiting the details of the Battlefield 1 server situation. With release a little over two weeks away it is not reassuring for communities looking for the positive reinforcement that they will have server control in BF1. After publishing our interview with ID3 stating that Battlefield 1 will not have rentable servers, we continued to push for response from DICE and EA. After reaching out to Jeff Braddock, the North American Battlefield Community Manager, he informed us answers would be released soon.
A quote from Braddock was also posted on the Battlefield 1 subreddit earlier this week. Official statement from DICE will be coming later this week ending the uncertainty of dedicated servers. As the release is approaching quickly we have little optimism for the situation but wait with fingers crossed for a miracle.
