Now that the game has been out on the market close to a week, Sledgehammer Games has outlined an upcoming patch for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare that will target bug fixes along with connectivity issues.
Taking to the studio’s dedicated blog, co-founder Michael Condrey published a list of issues that the imminent update will look to address.
- 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.
Based on feedback from the community, many will hope that Advanced Warfare’s first post-launch patch will be the alleviate the purported server issues, with some users experiencing crippling lag when trying to join or play in an online match.
But Condrey believes that, with the game’s dedicated servers providing constant support, those teething problems will be ironed sooner rather than later.
Here’s a statement provided by publisher Activision:
“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.”
It’s unclear exactly when the patch will become available for all platforms, though Condrey stated that more information will be shared soon.
