Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II launched on Friday across PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X. So far, it seems like the game is doing very well on PlayStation and on PC, where the comeback on Steam already saw Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II surpassing 260K concurrent players on Valve's digital platform, according to SteamDB.

NVIDIA also confirmed the issue with the following statement shared with PC Gamer:
