Now, as per the new changelog released for the update, it seems like a number of fixes have indeed arrived that looks to counter any bugs and issues related to the both single-player and multiplayer aspect of the game.

As revealed by the changelog, the new update for the PC version of the game fixes a certain issue that caused a memory leak, removes the Cancel button for missions that have already finished, and makes “Play Now” for Squad Deathmatch and Domination to work as intended.
