Every year, Activision releases a new Call of Duty game and fans of the franchise love it. 2018's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 revives the fan-favorite series, fully embracing its multiplayer success, while exploring new online modes such as "Zombies." A battle royale mode called "Blackout" is also part of the package.
As with any such experience, there are bound to be a few bugs. One such problem seemed to be exclusive to Xbox One where a Blackout match would freeze towards the end. The only way to fix this issue was to restart the game or, occasionally, your console. Both aren't ideal solutions because you lose progress, and developer Treyarch Studios was aware of it. Today, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 received a small 30 MB patch to fix exactly that.
Treyarch said, "We're released a patch on Xbox One to address intermittent freezing issues during late-game play in Blackout on Xbox One X. Thanks for your patience!" It appears that this problem was limited to the Xbox One X. We only encountered it on the console as well. Nevertheless, it's great to see that the freezing has been sorted out.
Recently, Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 set a new launch record for the publisher. The statement said the game "has set a new launch day record as the biggest day one digital release in Activision history. Digital sales for the first day of release broke the franchise record set in 2017 by Call of Duty: WWII... The title also quickly became the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one, globally. The first Call of Duty release ever on Blizzard's Battle.net, the PC version of Black Ops 4 also delivered a new franchise high in which launch day PC digital sales more than doubled year on year."
