Call of Duty: Mobile is now available, but it’s not working for everyone

Call of Duty’s free-to-play foray into the mobile market is now available for Android and iOS users, but some players are reporting issues accessing the game.

Throughout the day, numerous people have been reporting that they were stuck on the loading screen and were unable to get into the game. Activision acknowledged the issue on Twitter a few hours ago, assuring players that they were working on sorting the issue out:

As you can probably imagine, Call of Duty: Mobile has been inundated by curious players who have been eager to see just how well the game will translate to portable platforms. While a number of players have finally been able to get into the game over the last couple of hours, there are still plenty who still can’t get involved.

Call of Duty: Mobile allows players to take part in classic multiplayer modes across maps from the likes of the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series. Game modes will include series regulars such as Team Deathmatch, Gun Game, and Search & Destroy, and classic maps will include fan favourites like Hijacked, Nuketown, and Firing Range. The game also has its own battle royale mode, and Activision is promising to release regular new content.

I recently said that the success of the game is likely to come down to how well the game controls on a phone, but bugs like this will also affect its success in the long term. It’s pretty normal for a release such as this to experience a high amount of traffic on its launch day, so hopefully Activision can sort the issue sooner rather than later.
