Black Ops 2 on PS3 still has freezing issues, second patch 'should' drop today

New, 7 comments

The PlayStation 3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is still prone to some freezing issues after Saturday's patch, and a second patch reportedly planned for release today, according to a thread on Activision's support forums.

Last week players began experiencing screen freezing that required a system reset, with instances of the console shutting off completely while in-game. Most of these issues were experienced during online multiplayer matches.

Activision released a patch on Nov. 17 to address the freezing problems, but it didn't correct the issue for all players.

"We are aware that some customers are still experiencing PS3 lock-ups after installing the patch and we are doing everything we can to get to the bottom of it as quickly as possible," reads a message from Activision on its support page. Players still experiencing lock-ups are asked to complete a form providing the company with more details on the problem.

A second patch "should" be released today to solve remaining freezing issues, according to a Tweet from design director David Vonderhaar. The patch will also correct a number of glitches including Theater Mode displaying a "UI error 226117," the Escort Drone glitch that attacks whoever deploys it and a glitch that prevents the Dragonfire unmanned flying drone from deploying.

Activision is also investigating a glitch that makes Care Packages bounce directly off the map when dropped to the ground, making them inaccessible. A correction for the issue will most likely not be included in this next patch.
