Following the release of Modern Warfare 3, players have been encouraged to sign-up to Call Of Duty Elite, which give players an in-depth look at statistical details of their own performance and gameplay as well as that of the entire Call of Duty community. However, many users have reported issues accessing the site which has apparently crumbled under the pressure of high demand.
Activision confirmed the problems have been caused by the influx of new sign-ups and has reassured players experiencing problems that it is working on a quick fix.
"We are proud to say that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has launched and millions of people are already playing online," said Chacko Sonny, Studio Head, Beachhead Studio. "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."
"We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity as quickly as possible," he added. "Please be assured your gameplay data is safe and that whenever you successfully register for Call of Duty Elite, all of your data will be waiting for you."
Modern Warfare 3 launched yesterday on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Check out the review round-up to see how the critics rated the frenetic first-person shooter.
