Call of Duty and Guitar Hero offline due to Hurricane Sandy

Gone with the wind.

In addition to decimating part of the US' east coast and inspiring internet memes, Hurricane Sandy has shut down the online services for certain Activision games.

According to One of Swords, some data centers are currently without power which may affect online services for the following games:

  • Guitar Hero (all titles and platforms)
  • Call of Duty: World at War (all platforms)
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops (PS3, PC, Wii)

Activision offered the following statement on its support page:

"Due to the hurricane that affected the East Coast of the United States, multiplayer gaming with some of our online title is experiencing connectivity issues. We appreciate your patience."
