Modern Warfare 2 PS3 Multiplayer Outage

11 November 2009, 11:34 PM

As many of you PlayStation 3 owners are likely aware, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 saw its multiplayer mode crippled last night, right around the time a patch was released to fix an issue with trophies not unlocking properly. While it was first assumed that the patch had somehow caused multiplayer to tank, Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling revealed via Twitter that the patch had nothing to do with the outage.

"Xbox Live servers are maintained and ran by Microsoft. PSN servers are ran and maintained by 3rd party companies hired to do so," Bowling explained. He went on to say, "MP doesn't require a patch. It's a server overload not a bug in the code. They're working to have servers back up ASAP."

A few hours ago, Bowling announced that a second patch had been released, which means trophy unlocks should now be working properly in single-player and multiplayer. Bowling also said that IW is adding more servers to keep up with multiplayer demand, and that a number of those servers are starting to come online as we speak. There still might be issues for some people, but it looks like things should be up and running again smoothly soon.
