Today is the long-awaited Verdansk event in Call of Duty: Warzone where the map goes through its transformation. However, it isn’t going as smoothly as Raven Software or Activision had hoped. Warzone players on Reddit have reported being stuck in unmoving server queues. The event intitially began at 12:00 p.m. PST/ 3:00 p.m. EST and only ran for two hours.
Activision did comment on the struggles players are going through to log on to Call of Duty: Warzone. The Activision Support Twitter account posted a tweet stating, “We’re actively investigating an issue with long wait times in the server queue for Warzone.” Players attempting to get into Warzone are being met with server queue times that remain locked at 20 minutes.
Players who do make it through the server queues are still reporting server issues. For some, the end of the match is met with a server error or game crash. However, it is possible to play through the event without a hitch.
Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software has also given a statement regarding the ongoing issues via Twitter. The developer is “actively investigating the Warzone Destruction of Verdansk part 1 server issues.” An update is also on the way to “help reduce the frequency of crashes.”
It’s unclear if Raven Software will reschedule the beginning of the event, since so many players could not access the game–and therefore could not get the Calling Card associated with finishing a match during this event time.
