Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Update Rolling Out “Soon”


Sledgehammer Games Studio head Michael Condrey has revealed via a blog post that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set to receive an update soon that is set to repair a few problems like the poor connectivity issues people are suffering.

No time scale was given but the update is set to include the following:

– Prestige reset issues, including emblems and challenges.
– Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.
– Fix for weapon reloads counting as speed reloads in certain circumstances.
– Connectivity optimizations.
– Fix for stats accumulating towards leaderboards after prestiging.
– Adjustment to challenges to unlock Camos for weapons.
– Fix for round-based game modes, affecting Win/Loss ratios.
– Implemented ability to unlock eSports Rule options in Private Match.

The connectivity issues have been plaguing users since the game launched last week and some have even found the lag to make the game unplayable. Frequent match disconnects and the dreaded “service is not available” message have been reported by many PC and PlayStation 4 players of the game.

Users are frustrated due to Sledgehammer Games and Activision stating prior to the game release that it would feature dedicated servers for each platform and at this time they are currently using a peer-to-peer connection which is leading to the problems.

Condrey also had this to say:

“Also, we’ve been asked several times about the status of dedicated server support.”

“Activision shared this statement earlier this week: Advanced Warfare employs game servers hosted at data centers globally on all platforms and listen servers as part of our proprietary matchmaking system. Our goal is to ensure the best possible connection and greatest gameplay experience regardless of location and time of day.”

Either way we certainly hope that the issue is solved promptly but I personally have experienced no issues on the Xbox One. Have you had any of these problems? Let us know below.
