Escape From Tarkov Getting New Server Update To Lower Matching Time in Some Regions

It seems that Escape From Tarkov’s player base in some regions has plummeted, resulting in lousy and slow matchmaking. Some notorious Escape From Tarkov streamers have also noticed this behavior, which has caused them colossal downtime, finding entertainment in some other games between queues. For that reason, Battlestate Games is installing an update that should increase the matching time, or better said, lower the number of players required before you hop into a raid.

The server update is already ongoing, and it’s happening as we write this piece. The update should conclude without any significant server downtime. The in-raid time may be reduced to 10 minutes, and players will be extracted without reaching the exfil. The announcement for this update was posted on Escape From Tarkov’s official Twitter profile.

If nothing else, this could indicate a potential wipe coming really soon. Until new features are tested and completely polished, this process may take a while. Nevertheless, it should be completed sooner than later.
