As you may all know by now, Call of Duty: Mobile is finally out and available for you all to play on your smartphones. In fact, the game has already reached over a million downloads on the Google Play Store owing to how much it was anticipated by fans. However, things don’t seem good for the new Battle Royale as servers have started getting overloaded resulting in a stuck loading screen.
Being a AAA game that has gathered loyal fans over so many years, you can expect the level of anticipation over The launch of CoD: Mobile. Couple that with the fact that it is set to compete against Fortnite and PUBG Mobile, which happen to be the two hottest mobile games right now. Having an issue like this in less than 24 hours of its launch, it will surely last a permanent negative impression.

Or will it? As you see, issues like these are quite common with new online multiplayer games that have just come out. You might not believe it but the same probably happened with PUBG and Fortnite as well. The reason why we never noticed is that both of those weren’t as popular at the start and, instead, gained popularity as more and more people started to play them. On the other hand, CoD was the most awaited with people counting down to its launch.
So what exactly has happened? Well, the most probable cause is a server overloading issue. Too many people are trying to play the game at the same time and it’s more than what the current servers can handle. Game developers do not invest that much in buying extra servers at the start, as they’re unsure about the turnout. Regardless, it’s not such a big issue and it will be solved in no time.
