It seems that Black Ops Cold War will start in 2021 with a power outage as the servers go down on New Year’s Day.
It’s the first day of a new year, but we’re still dealing with the same old problems. It seems that Black Ops Cold War will get this year’s first server problems out of the way in early 2021.
We are barely in on the first day of the year, and Black Ops Cold War servers are already down. Many players report getting links from the Cold War servers on all platforms.
This comes after the new Black Ops Cold War update which adds a new operator and weapons to the game.
Black Ops Cold War New Year̵
7;s Server Break
At the time of writing, it appears that Black Ops Cold War servers are having issues on both console and PC.
An alert on the Activision Support website appears to confirm that the game is “experiencing connectivity issues.” An orange “Outage” alert can also be found on the Online Services page.
Our Black Ops Cold War Server status page detects increased issues related to the game. And many users online take their complaints directly to the publisher this holiday weekend.
When will Cold War Black Ops servers be released?
These interruptions in the Black Ops Cold War server usually do not last too long. However, it is especially unfortunate that this happens during the Cold War New Year’s Double XP weekend.
Some players on Reddit also report that the problems occurred shortly after using a Double Weapon XP token. Unfortunately, these tokens count down whether you are in the game or not, which makes players very annoyed.
It is likely that users will not get a refund for their missing XP when the servers return online. And players must continue to hone to unlock the Black Ops sledgehammer quickly where they left off.
We’re sure Activision is working on a solution right now, but neither the publisher nor Treyarch has publicly acknowledged the problem. Instead, Treyarch chose to tease a new advantage for Black Ops Cold War Zombies.
And it’s not the only exciting pea coming from Twitter recently. In a message wishing fans a happy new year, Sledgehammer Games may have teased COD 2021.
