Call of Duty struggled with server stability issues in 2020 during year one of Warzone — and it looks as though server issues are back after the June 2 update. 

Raven Software added a new LTM called Champion of Caldera as part of the Warzone June 2 update.

Champion of Caldera is a 150-player game mode that forces players to fight while dealing with a continuously closing circle. Each player drops in with their own loadout, a Redeploy Extraction Token, and a gas mask.

Unfortunately, the ambitious game mode has had a rocky first day and server instability is plaguing players that are trying to queue up. Raven Software tweeted about the issues and in response has lowered the player count in Champion of Caldera from 150 to 120.
