Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is only a few weeks away from release, so this seemed like the perfect time for the game’s closed beta to see how the servers could handle an influx of players. While this is a closed beta for those that have codes only, the servers are already an absolute mess so far.
For most anyone that has logged on to try and play the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare closed beta thus far, you have likely had some issues.
The beta was supposed to kick off yesterday morning, but due to some issues before the start, the start was delayed by a few hours. This led to people getting some sort of error code known as Lumen until the servers went live, but that was far from the only problem.
Upon the beta actually going live, players were met with incredibly long wait times just to find a match, or some even not being able to find a match at all after waiting an hour.
Activision has confirmed that there are problems with people finding matches, even though there are plenty of players trying to play the game. While they say they are working on a solution, they did provide a temporary fix that may help you in the meantime.
They said to simply exit and restart your game, and hopefully that will get you on a different server with better luck in matchmaking. This is obviously going to still cause plenty of issues, so prepare to get rather frustrated with the beta until we get an official fix.
