Finally many gamers can get hold of the latest installment of Call of Duty after the game launched in certain regions a few hours ago. But just like when Battlefield 3 launched it looks like there is going to be some teething troubles. We are hearing reports that Call of Duty Elite has been hit with login and load problems.
Activision launched the new service alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 a few hours ago, but as CVG are reporting the service has already encountered some problems. The Call of Duty Elite service has been launched for the more hardcore COD players out there, but it seems it has been overwhelmed with demand.
These problems seem to be caused by the sheer number of gamers trying to log into the service. Problems have been noted though and the Call of Duty Twitter feed posted “We are aware of the issue”, and added that the “Surge of new Elite registrations is creating reg & login issues. Teams are working now to increase capacity”
The actual Elite homepage also notes the problems and asks users to be patient, and states that users don’t need to change their password as the issue is being caused by a load issue. It does look like the actual service is working fine; it’s just getting signed in that is causing a problem. Users are also being advised that all their COD Elite data is being safely recorded and will be available once issues have been ironed out.
Early problems may have gone away already and with such a huge amount of gamers trying to log on at once may overwhelmed the games servers temporarily. Is the service working ok for you now?
