Call of Duty Ghosts, the latest installment in the franchise that is currently available in stores went offline on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Network for twenty four hours yesterday. This information came to light after Activision and Infinity Ward had a mass amount of people tweet out to them through Twitter, complaining about how the online functionality wasn’t working at all on both consoles.
Call of Duty hasn’t had one of their games go offline by chance since Call of Duty World At War. When Activision did some research on their systems they found that they had been hacked and implemented with a virus that cancels all online functionality on the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. This was proven to be a massive problem for Activision and Infinity Ward, both companies went to work late last night trying to fix the problem and when gamers went to play the online mode in COD Ghosts today they were pleased to see that online functionality had returned.
Activision alongside Infinity Ward quickly got rid of all traces of the virus, allowing for the online mode to run smoothly without any hiccups. Activision posted a statement through their Twitter saying, “We weren’t able to find who placed this hack onto our systems but we have been able to reverse the problem, once again allowing for our loyal fans to enjoy the Call of Duty Ghosts experience online.”
If you don’t own COD Ghosts you can purchase it for $60 at any local electronics store.
