Three days after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s release, its premium online subscription service, Call of Duty Elite remains broken. Activision has confirmed that they will be adding an additional month of service to all paid for one year memberships.
When Modern Warfare 3 released on Tuesday, the service was hit with an unexpected number of new registrants, which crashed the service and it’s yet to recover.
“At launch, our registration and login systems were crushed by gamers trying to enter the Elite site at the same time,” according to an update on the service. “We have now fixed the registration and login systems, but we have found that the greater than expected demand is crashing servers. We’re immediately deploying multiple additional servers to beef up the system. We are also going to temporarily limit access to Elite services on both the console applications and website while we build additional capacity and scale. We’ll look to increase access to greater numbers of users as soon as possible.”
Activision also noted that if you are able to get on to the system, it may show incorrect stats — but the game is still tracking the right ones.
