Splitgate's recent boom in popularity has brought in a significant wave of new players to the free-to-play first-person shooter but also had some negative consequences, particularly noticeable when it comes to its fluctuating server status. The title's servers are having trouble keeping up the pace, which has led to lengthy matchmaking times, but also maintenance that takes them offline.
Regardless if you're one of the new players, looking to hop in now, or joining the game at some point further down the line, keeping track of the Splitgate server status if vital when planning your play sessions. It's no good to get ready only to find that matchmaking is slow or unavailable because of maintenance. That's what we'll keep you updated on below.
The Splitgate servers were taken offline on July 28 and will remain unavailable until Friday, July 30, developer 1047 Games has noted.
"After much internal deliberation we’ve decided to leave servers offline until Friday (PT). This gives us the time needed to implement fixes to matchmaking and backend stability," it said in a tweet.
There's no exact timeframe for when exactly we might be able to resume playing the first-person shooter's beta, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that this extended downtime will result in fewer issues across the board. Server problems have prompted the developer to delay the title's full release.
"Our goal for tomorrow [Friday] is to stably support 100k concurrent users with casual, ranked, and customs and a more robust queue system. We plan to give updates on expected wait times in our discord throughout the day," the developer added.
For more on Spligate's server status, we've got you covered, but it's also a good idea to keep an eye on the game's Twitter, as news of maintenance, matchmaking issues, and unplanned downtime is also shared there.
