Players are stuck on the loading screen with an update failing to download.


Update: Activision says the issues have been resolved, so you should be able to jump in on iOS and Android now if you were having issues before. The most recent issue as of Thursday morning (US time) seems to be Call of Duty: Mobile controller support, which has been removed after an update.

The freshly launched Call of Duty: Mobile is not starting for several players, with many finding themselves stuck on the loading screen and receiving an "update download failed" error message, which you can see below.
