Call Of Duty Modern Warfare players facing games issues

Call of Duty is a sprawling machine with complex moving parts spread out across multiple games and studios, and it appears to currently be overheating, especially on consoles. For days now have been complaining that 2019’s Modern Warfare is all but broken, while even players are facing new issues after the launch of the game’s big new Caldera map, which came just as many QA testers at Activision went on strike following layoff announcements.

It’s always hard to tell just how widespread bugs are, but there’s no shortage of people complaining about running into problems online. One of the biggest culprits appears to be an endless loop in which several Call of Duty games flicker between the home menu and a loading screen. Late last week, Twitter started filling up with players sharing footage of the problem across Modern Warfare, Vanguard, and Warzone.

“We’re working to fix an issue causing players to get caught in an update loop,” reads Activision’s support page, which says the problem is mostly affecting PS4 and Xbox One players. “In some cases, the game appears to be uninstalling and reinstalling game data.” In the meantime, Activision recommends players affected clear the cache data on their consoles.

In Modern Warfare, on the other hand, players are having trouble getting the game to install and recognise the many data packs required to keep it up-to-date. The subreddit has been full of complaints by people unable to play, either because of these installation issues, or other crashes, freezes, and bugged match queue times.

One of the main lubricants for Call of Duty is quality assurance testers, dozens of whom are entering their second week of a strike after Activision announced layoffs for some of those working directly on Warzone. “The Raven QA department is essential to the day-to-day functioning of the studio as a whole,” developers at Raven wrote at the time. “Terminating the contracts of high performing testers in a time of consistent work and profit puts the health of the studio at risk.”

So far, the groups’ demands have not been met, but a strike fund sustaining the effort has already accumulated over $US300,000 ($420,600) in funds. The labour action and new wave of issues in the games are going on as most video game studios revert to a skeleton crew to keep the servers on during the end-of-year break. That also happens to be the same time when Call of Duty gets flooded with new and returning players during the holiday season.
