Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Pre-Load Glitch Affecting Users On EU/AUS PlayStation Store

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is currently available for pre-load on the North American PlayStation Store. The pre-load was supposed to start for the rest of the regions on November 1st but due to a bug, some users are currently having issues with starting the pre-load on the announced date.

If you have Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 digitally pre-ordered from EU or AUS PlayStation Store, you might be experiencing this glitch which changes the pre-load date from November 1st to November 5th, which is the official launch date for the game. North American PlayStation Store users seem to be unaffected by this glitch. You can take a look at a screenshot from one of the affected users below.


While it is hard to point towards the cause of this glitch, it only seems to affect the AUS and EU region. The only pre-load that seems to activate for these users is the Nuk3town and The Giant multiplayer maps.

If you are one of the affected users and still can’t download the game, unfortunately there is no solution available right now. It is entirely possible that the pre-load date was changed from November 1st to November 5th for these regions, and in that case, we can’t really do anything except wait for it.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be released on November 6th, 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Let us know if you are having issues with your pre-load in the comments below.
