As with any major multiplayer title release, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 had its ups and downs in its opening hours. Many players reported having issues with their connection, even though things seem to have settled now.

Black Ops 4 Server Status Check
In the game’s first few hours, the Black Ops 4 server status has been having a few problems for players. If you want to check if there’s an outage in your area right now you can head to Down Detector and check the Live Outage Map and even report having a problem. Over the past hours there was a minimum of reports on that matter so, we can say the launch was successful despite the first hour spikes.
