Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Matchmaking Issues Might Be Plaguing You Right This Moment, Here’s How to Fix It


Studio Design Director at Treyarch David Vonderhaar tweeted out the list of changes:

We’ll keep everyone posted once more hotfixes or patches have been rolled out.

Original Story:

If you’ve been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 since early this morning or haven’t logged off the entire day, then chances are, you might have noticed a few Black Ops 3 matchmaking issues that prevents you from joining a game as fast as normal.

Don’t worry, it’s not your internet, nor is it PSN going down. It’s just a matter of Treyarch rolling out a hotfix, which means you need to download it to get the best possible experience. You can do so by closing the game and restarting it. Either that or disconnecting from a game, going to the main menu and then reconnecting. Both should prompt a very quick download. While there’s no actual notes on what this little download does, you should see your Black Ops 3 version (PS4) go from “” to “” the moment you finish downloading it.

That little string of numbers can be seen in the topmost right of the title and menu screen. Here’s my latest screengrab to show where it is.


Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Black Ops 3 matchmaking issues manifest. We’ve seen worse things happen during the first few days of launch, with some people even put on queues before they can join a match.

Let’s hope Treyarch sorts this out, as well as other Black Ops 3 issues soon.
