It is not a joke at all. We do believe it’s a serious issue and the Anthem VIP Demo servers got overflooded by the excessive amount of players and the act of joining at the same time.

We’re sorry, but the EA servers reached max capacity. Please try again later.
This occasion is being used to create this article and let everyone know what exactly is going on. It’s not just you, but all of the live streamers on Twitch are having the same problem.
Therefore, do not despair, we’re certain this issue is being worked on, and the servers will become available sooner than later. All of the notorious and Twitter accounts in property of EA are being silent over this issue. I guess we’re just left to wait.
It seems like both the US and EU servers are up and running. After some time of playing, multiple players are stuck at loading screen which somewhat indicates to yet another server crash.
We also have the first response by the devs, claiming that they’re working on adding more servers so they could eliminate the issue:
