Amazon Games has issued an official statement regarding the huge queues in MMORPG New World. The developers reported that the demand for the game was “overwhelming” and the number of players continued to grow. According to them, they really aimed to attract a large number of users, but were still surprised by the result.
However, the studio assures that it is not sitting idly by. Since launch, the number of servers has doubled. Work is already underway to increase server bandwidth to support even more concurrent players. Their total number will continue to increase. Also next week, a character transfer function should appear, which should free up the most loaded worlds.
Right now, the team noted, 40% of servers have low latency or none at all. Therefore, beginners are advised to choose them.
