Escape From Tarkov will get a 24-hour backend server maintenance

24 hour of server maintenance to improve stability and performance

On Tuesday, the developer of Escape From Tarkov, Battlestate Games, announced that another server maintenance is queued for tomorrow. The maintenance is supposed to improve the backend servers and strengthen their resilience under heavy load. This process will take approximately 24 hours and a whole day of work for the developer.

Escape From Tarkov has had a lot of server issues during this wipe. The heavy number of players has pushed the developers to invent a queue system to balance the servers and uphold playability. All of you who have struggled in the past period will hopefully get a chance to play whenever you want, without avoiding primetime.

The maintenance will start tomorrow, January 19, at 10 am MSK time, and it will take roughly around 24 hours before its completion. The game will not stop; however, it may have some weird spikes in gameplay experience and connection.

Furthermore, Battlestate Games said that tomorrow’s server maintenance would be essential for future performance and stabilization of the backend servers. The update should address the lingering queue times, presumably removing them completely.

Tomorrow, January 19 at 10 am MSK, we are planning to perform the next stage of backend server maintenance. This process will take approx. 24 hours, but may be extended if required. The game will not stop, however, players might experience various issues until maintenance is over.

This maintenance is very important for further stabilization of the backend under high load without queues. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
