Modern Warfare 3’s Early Access Period kicked off on November 2, and now multiple Call of Duty titles are experiencing service outages, with the servers being down across the franchise.
Fans around the world have waited eagerly for the next chapter of the Call of Duty Franchise, and many have opted in for early access ahead of the game’s official launch. However, MW3 relies on a server connection to be played, and some fans are experiencing problems.
Are CoD: MW3 Early Access Servers Down?
As of right now, Call of Duty MW3 and MW2 servers are down. This issue is still ongoing as of 4:30 PM EST. Not only are players getting locked out of the campaign, but those hoping to jump into other CoD games while they wait are also out of luck.
Call of Duty content creator and pro commentator dreamcrazzy reported an error code which appears to be part of the problem. “Daily login: Can’t login due to MINOT-HAWTHORNE whatever that means,” she tweeted.
There are still no updates at this time, but Sledgehammer Games has already pushed out one update that was preventing players from accessing the game at all.

As I wrote in the “Disc Required” bugfix guide, these kinds of issues regularly happen on Call of Duty launch days. Typically, Multiplayer tends to be the problem area, but it’s clear that MW3’s campaign is going to be a bit of a bumpy ride for now as well.
For those who can still access the game, we have some early guides for you to check out. If you’re stuck without access, all that’s left to do is twiddle your thumbs until the developers provide another update on the game’s condition.
We will have the latest updates as service is restored, bugs are fixed, and the fun gets rolling once again.
Call of Duty is currently experiencing a server outage, so we’ve got a server status hub setup so you know if you can get into the game.
