Logging in for a game of Warzone and being confronted by an error is hugely aggravating. And this time, unfortunately, it's not something we can provide you with a fix for. Because this time, it's the devs bringing down the Warzone servers on their end. So why are the Warzone servers down? When will we finally be able to play again? You can find all information about the current server outages here.
Are the Warzone servers down?
No, the Warzone servers are now functional again after the global outage a few hours ago (May 8, 12:00 PT / 15:00 ET / 20:00 BST / 21:00 CEST). So if you still can't connect to the servers then that's a problem on your end.
Warzone is plagued by numerous bugs time and again. Some of them can be easily fixed with our guides, while others need to be addressed by the developers. Unfortunately, should Warzone's servers go down, there is nothing you can do. We'll just have to wait and hope that Activision takes care of the problem quickly.
How to check the Warzone server status?
But how can we actually find out if the problem is us or if the Warzone servers are down right now? If you can't get into the game, there are several ways to check whether the problem is with you or with the servers.
- Check out the official Activision support page.
- Follow Activision Support on Twitter.
- Follow Raven Software on Twitter.
On the official Activision support page, maintenance and server outages are usually always announced, and you can even get notified as soon as the servers are back online. You can also report problems with Warzone or other Call of Duty titles here. On Twitter, both the Activision Support and the developer Raven Software also provide updates on known issues, including server outages, and keep you updated on the progress of the fix.
What to do if you can't connect to the servers?
If you can't connect to the Warzone servers, but also can't find any indication that the servers are down, the problem is probably on your end. In this case, follow the steps below:
Check if Warzone is up-to-date
Incomplete updates or an outdated game can often lead to connection issues. So check your PC or console to make sure you have updated Warzone to the latest version.
Check for updates on PC
- Open Battle.net and go to Warzone.
- Click the gear icon next to the "Play" button.
- Click on "Check for update".
- If this does not work, click "Scan and repair".
Check for updates on PlayStation and Xbox
- Close Warzone.
- Go to your game's library.
- Find Warzone and click on "Options".
- Click "Check for Update" on PlayStation or "Manage Game" -> "Downloads" on Xbox.
Check your connection
Of course, the problem may simply be your Internet connection. So the best thing to do is to restart your router and, if possible, connect your PC or console directly to the router via a LAN cable.
- Unplug your router.
- Wait a few seconds.
- Plug the router back in.
- Wait 5-10 minutes.
- Restart Warzone.
