There is no easy way to say this, but it seems like Raven Software and Activision have dropped the ball once more. This time around, it could seal its fate and cause the studio to have to bring the shutter down on the standalone title Call of Duty: Warzone. Moreover, there is reason to believe the Pacific update may have put COD Warzone in jeopardy.

The studio also promised to also roll out the highly anticipated kernel-level anti-cheat system, Ricochet. Sadly, everything went horribly wrong for the studio as the recent update ruined the game and because the servers got hit with a DDoS attack.

Pacific update is killing Call of Duty Warzone

Popular streamers and community members have both showcased their dissatisfaction with the recent update. The scenic beauty of the new Battle Royale map soon turns into a buggy not optimized mess that is simply unplayable. Gamers have been vocal about all the issues that they have been facing, as the problems continue to pile on. But, hey at least the studio gave us Krampus, but is that enough to cover up the mess?

Following the release of the bad update, the studio had decided to remove Rebirth Island from the game. Thankfully, the developers brought the popular game mode back on 16th December. This tiny island is home to many players who tune in to the game to experience the chaos and madness of the infamous island. Verdansk might be replaceable, but rebirth isn’t, and it needs to stay forever.

The DDOS attack and the server not working at their maximum potential is still a serious problem that is haunting the game. Although, gamers have experienced a reduction in the number of cheaters, ever since Ricochet went live. Warzone is not in a good place at the moment, but it is surely not dead. The studio can still turn the ship around by addressing all the issues that haunt the game and adding necessary patches.
