If you're having some issues joining the "Squad Assault" game mode or viewing the leaderboards for Call of Duty: Ghosts, we've got your back. We're hard at work with our partner on getting you back into the game as quickly as possible. Thanks for your patience while we work! We'll update you on our progress as soon as we can.

No word what has caused the outage yet. If you're trying to log on but can't, just know you're not alone. Have you been experiencing any server difficulties with Squad Assault or Ghosts — or any other games, for that matter? Let us know in the comments.
