Hundreds of thousands of gamers are playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 RIGHT NOW, but the game's launch has not been completely without hiccups.
Call of Duty: Elite, the social network that will accompany the brand going forwards, is currently facing a number of issues as it struggles to cope with the huge amount of players trying to access the service.
A quick look at the Xbox 360 MW3 servers just a short time ago showed that in excess of 400k users are currently playing the multiplayer game.
Registration requests for our new live service Call of Duty Elite are exceeding even our most optimistic expectations, which is creating a bottleneck and some players have not been able to register,” Beachhead studio head Chacko Sonny stated.
We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity as quickly as possible.”
Players have been assured that even if they cannot access Elite, their stats will still be tracked as long as they have already registered.
