The company is working to correct the issue according to Activision Support on Twitter, pointing players to its Online Services status tracker. The status tracker recommends restarting your router, using a wired connection, checking your connection speed, and limiting applications that take up bandwidth to correct normal service issues, but given the scale of the current outage, these probably won’t do much until Activision addresses the problem.
As of 1:37 PM PT, Activision reported the issue “under investigation.” There are no further updates.
