Short fix for the "Out Of Memory 5" load an older map before trying to load the new ones works after that we will just have to wait till they patch the issue. Other thing Clearing you System Cache, Re-Installing etc etc doesn't work so don't waste your time on that.

Happening to me too. Except I tried to start off with the new Spec Ops mission, and I can't play it since it says there's, and to go to multiplayer to get it, even when I already got it.

Loading an older map and then quiting helps. I had just downloaded the new maps and it would give me that error. I'm not too fond of the extremely close quarter maps for the face off gametypes, but meh

As some people in the thread have stated, there are a few solutions to the issue.

For users playing physical copies of MW3, please use the below steps. 

  1. Reboot your console
  2. Launch Multiplayer
  3. Load a previously released map in private match
  4. Play the new content

If you have the game data installed on your hard drive, you can delete the game data and it will work without issues.

The developers are aware of the issues and are working to resolve it. We thank you for your patience.
