Though it’s been in beta testing for quite some time, Daybreak Game Company were forced to take the servers offline following the game’s official launch yesterday. The servers have since been brought back online for the US, but are still unavailable in the EU.
Following Director of Developement Andy Sites’ Twitter feed shows that Daybreak have been tackling a number of issues over the last 24 hours, but the initial culprit for the continuing EU downtime seems to be a problem with purchases, both in game and on the PS Store.
We're continuing to work with Playstation team to resolve the #ps2onps4 EU server issues and will post updates as we make progress.

Meanwhile, demand for space has been very high in the US, and Daybreak have activated additional servers, as well as performing spot fixes to prevent player warping, reduce lag and improve performance.
The work continues, but in the meantime, there’s a new launch trailer to whet your appetite for some functioning EU servers.
