Call of Duty players have recently encountered a frustrating roadblock when loading the game or navigating the menu - the MW3 and Warzone black screen problem. But fear not, as there are ways to address this issue without having to undergo the hassle of reinstalling the game.

The black screen problem seems to be linked to a Season 3 server error, but the good news is that the COD Updates Twitter account is actively working on a fix for this issue. So, while waiting for an official update, a simple restart of the game might work as a temporary solution for some players.


If you're playing on Battle.net, some players recommend changing your region settings to potentially resolve the black screen problem in Call of Duty. Once you've made the change, launch the game and then switch back to your original region. Sometimes, a small adjustment like this can refresh the settings and eliminate the bug causing the black screen.

This black screen issue isn't limited to a particular platform, as players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S have reported experiencing the problem as well. With the launch of each new season in Call of Duty, it's common to encounter errors like this due to the high player counts during these periods. Therefore, it's essential to keep an eye out for any new updates that may address these issues.

To stay updated on the progress of COD Updates in resolving the black screen problem, you can visit the black screen's dedicated Trello card here. This platform also addresses other known issues, such as the Call of Duty not updating bug for Season 3. Rest assured, the CoD team is aware of these issues and is working on providing fixes in a timely manner.
