Well today, the gaming community knows why we have never seen anything about Battlefield 3 private matches. The DICE Global Community Manager, Daniel Matros responded to a tweet asking him "make this easy.. Private matches (will/will not) be in day 1.. please chose one ;) <3 U". Daniel replied back stating, "Private matches not on launch for consoles.". This is very disappointing to hear since there are quite a few hardcore gamebattles players on console.
