If you rushed out to the store today to pick up your copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, take heed that you might run into a bit of a snag when signing up for Call of Duty Elite, Activision’s premiere Call of Duty enhancement service.
Apparently, Activision and Beachhead Studios, the team who developed Elite, were not anticipating the amount of traffic the service would pull in on day one. This had lead to a “capacity bottleneck,” which has resulted in some gamers not being able to sign up for Call of Duty Elite.
"Registration requests for our new live service Call of Duty Elite are exceeding even our most optimistic expectations, which is creating a bottleneck and some players have not been able to register," reads a status note by Beachhead Studios on the Call of Duty Elite website. "We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity as quickly as possible."
Beachhead urges players to keep an eye on the official Elite website, as well as Twitter for any/all updates. And if you do happen to be one of the lucky ones to get in, enjoy your Elite experience, you scoundrel.
