You can check out the official writing of EA’s community manager just below:
We were absolutely blown away by your excitement and reactions to the recent Battlefield 2042 reveal.
Since then, many of you have jumped back into Battlefield 4 to already get a taste of the return to all-out-warfare. We’ve been monitoring your experience and noticed increased queue times for US West, US East and Europe regions compared to other regions. Good news, we’ve increased server capacity for this region – you can expect less waiting, and more playing.
We’ll continue monitoring queue times and will make further adjustments as necessary.
Thank you for playing!
