The launch day of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sent millions to retailers to pick up a copy, and a good percentage wanted to register for an account on Call of Duty Elite. The demand was such that the service is suffering from a significant backlog as hundreds of thousands look to log in, as technicians look to fix the issue.
“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 for 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.”
“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,” he added. “So enjoy the game, start ranking up and we assure you we are working around the clock to accommodate every player who wants to be a part of Call of Duty Elite as quickly as possible. We will update you frequently to keep you informed.”
