Having problems finding a match in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 right this very moment? Nope, it’s not your internet connection, or your console. It seems players all over the world, and on every platform, are having a hard time connecting to a game right now.
People across different platforms have been messaging the Activision Support Twitter to know just what the hell is going on. We’ve embedded a few complaints, but there’s a LOT more here.
@ATVIAssist are the servers down for Ps4?? Cant find any players

@Treyarch who do I need to contact about my black ops 3 game not working. It will not search or connect me to online lobby’s.

Our own Managing Editor Mack Ashworth has been experiencing matchmaking issues as well, and has resigned to just play the zombies mode for the time being. While I’ve been able to get into a match here and there, it’s taken me close to five minutes to find a simple match of Domination, and my ping bar fluctuates for no reason (me and other players in the same match). I’ve yet to play a game the past two hours where I had a stable connection
While that in itself is annoying for a game focused heavily on online multplayer, the Activision Support Twitter’s response is even more depressing. When asked by a gamer if there’s any news on this Black Ops 3 matchmaking issue, the Activision Support rep answered that there are “no updates at the moment.”
@michaelmicciche Unfortunately we don’t have any updates at the moment. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. ^AR
