After the huge update of Infinity Wards for the base game Call of Duty Modern Warfare and its Battle Royale, Warzone, a lot of players got stuck on the loading screen, particulary when it says “Connecting to Online Services”. Even restarting the game and the PC several times won’t fix the problem.
Other user will also get an from the Sign In screen that says “Connection to the Blizzard game server has been lost. Please exit and try again. Error Code: BLZBNTBGS00000001 or BLZBNTBGS0000003F8”.
