Call of Duty: Ghosts “Black Screen” Glitch

Posted on Jan 5 2014 - 2:36pm by Cody Labelle

As of today, many Call of Duty players have been having some problems with starting up the newest Call of Duty game on Xbox One and PS4. What happens is the game will look like it is starting, you will see the ghost face mask then your screen will go black. If you are having problems try doing some of these things below.

  • Try ejecting the disc and put it back in.
  • Try holding the power button until the brick light goes orange the turn on your console again.
  • If the first two things didn’t work for you, try unplugging your Xbox One from its power source for about 30 seconds, then plug it back in and boot up your game.

If you are still having problems, I suggest you go to Activision or Infinity Ward for further help. You could even go to the Call of Duty forums or the comments below because Activision and Infinity Ward support can be quite slow at times like this.

Really these types of things shouldn’t be happening on a next gen console, or even at all. Infinity Ward had a whole year to work on Call of Duty: Ghosts so it shouldn’t have many glitches, and if any some minor map glitches not a boot up glitch! Let’s hope Infinity Ward can get their act together and fix this glitch and prevent any other glitches like this from happening.
