"Unprecedented demand for Aliens vs Predator... brought to light matchmaking issues on the PC platform resulting in players having to wait to join games, or even not find games at all," Rebellion says, relayed by a 'Community Monkey' at SEGA Europe.
"We're really sorry that this issue tainted a day in which we saw many people get hands on with AvP for the first time," the post apologies, saying that the problem has now been corrected by a patch which will auto-update on Steam when the game is launched.
AvP arrives for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America on February 16 then for Europe on February 19. A multiplayer demo is out now for all three platforms.
