While these issues may be occurring due to multiple reasons, the exact cause of the problems remains a mystery.

It is possible that the latest patch might be taking some time to get accustomed but the possibility of something broken cannot be overlooked as well.

However, all this is still based on speculation as the game developers, Infinity Ward and Raven Software, or publisher, Activision, have not made any comments on the matter so far.

This is inconveniencing players across different platforms as the game is virtually unplayable because of lag and stuttering.

Moreover, there is currently no workaround for these issues which is further adding to users’ dilemma.

Hopefully, the game developers and publisher look into the matter and provide users with a proper solution for the aforementioned problems.
