    A targeted DDoS attack on Xbox Live’s server infrastructure on Tuesday evening has disrupted Battlefield Hardline’s first day of release, with players reporting intermittent problems connecting to the game.
    Publisher Electronic Arts says that the issue is, for now, limited to the Xbox One edition. At 8pm Pacific Time on Tuesday, the company wrote on Twitter that it was “aware of Battlefield Hardline connectivity issues” and hoped the matter would be resolved quickly.
    Two hours later, however, it announced that the connection problems were the result of a targeted online attack and had not been resolved. It wrote: “We’ve identified the connectivity issues on Xbox One are due to DDoS attack and working to resolve. Apologies for the inconvenience.”

    No further statements were made. While some users are still reporting connection problems, it appears this issue is not widespread.


    Battlefield Hardline shipped on Tuesday on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The response from critics has been mixed, with GameSpot’s Battlefield Hardline review highlighting many issues with the game’s AI, narrative, and challenge.
