The Battlefield 4 community has a bone to pick with developer DICE.
Among their complaints, as listed here , are lack of communication with the developer, deceiving admins with hidden patches, and cheaters able to "destroy servers."
As such, they're staging a protest that involves closing the game's servers on Saturday, January 3. Basically, they're just annoyed that DICE doesn't communicate with the admins for a number of reasons, so those who run the individual servers are going on strike. We can't be sure what effect this will have but hey, it's getting attention. We'll have to see if DICE responds in some way, or offers an explanation as to why they haven't really been replying to server admins.
Well, maybe they're working on new projects. Nothin' wrong with that, right?
