Treyarch confirm they’re looking into broken Black Ops Cold War issues after September 26 update

Treyarch respond to black ops cold war issues

Black Ops Cold War players have been experiencing a variety of issues such as game crashes, and Treyarch have reassured the community that they’re investigating these problems.

As players eagerly await the release of the highly-anticipated Modern Warfare 2 on October 28, many of them have hopped into previous games like Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War to pass the time.

However, many Cold War players have been experiencing major issues that are preventing them from enjoying the game, and this has caught the attention of the developers who have promised a fix.

On September 26, Treyarch released a new update patch for Black Ops Cold War, and this was followed by numerous reports from the community of game crashes and black screens.

Treyarch immediately responded to both of these issues on Twitter by reassuring players that they are “aware of and investigating” them. They then followed it up by announcing that they’ll update the game’s Trello card with more information.
