Activision's latest addition to their hugely successful shooter franchise Call of Duty: Black Ops has made a big splash after yesterday's launch. While we don't all the boasting numbers as yet, Steam statistics
of PC concurrent users have recorded a peak of 77,609 people simultaneously playing multiplayer.
Unfortunately things haven't gone completely smoothly and while the controversial "exclusive" dedicated server supplier appears to be meeting launch demand for the most part, many day one players have reported frequent lagging and freezes -- the causes of which point toward being a mix of client CPU issues and issues communicating with the game's master servers.
Although no official announcements have been made, the developers have indicated via social networking methods that they are well aware of the issues and are working on fixes.
Call of Duty: Black Ops is now available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
