Fix: Xbox Series X: Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War shuts off console
So, one thing is clear that the Xbox Series X console gets turned off once the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War game launched for plenty of users. But no one can’t understand why this particular issue is happening to them. One thing also needs to be cleared that apart from shutting down the console, it also gets too hot in a very short time which basically takes quite some time for other games.
Now, the problem is particularly happening to most of the Xbox Series X users while launching the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War game due to the wrong version of the game installation. It seems that most of the Xbox Series X users have ended up installing the Xbox One version of the COD Black Ops Cold War game by default.
So, it doesn’t matter whether you’re installing the Black Ops Cold War Standard Edition or Ultimate Edition via digital purchase. The only matter is to choose and install the right Xbox console version of your game according to your current console model.
- All you need is to uninstall the Xbox One version of the COD: Black Ops Cold War game and install the Xbox Series X version.
- As the Series X Black Ops Cold War version is around 130GB in size to download and install, some of the console users may find it slightly difficult or time-consuming. But the one-time proper installation will fix the console shut down issue completely.

Why It’s Happening?
Now, you may ask why this issue appears? Well, Activision is delivering the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Cross-Gen Bundle pack that includes both the Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S version of the game. Therefore, Xbox Series X|S users are installing the Xbox One version of this game by default.
It’s a big mistake from Activision that causes such an issue and it’s pretty much unacceptable as well for most of the Xbox console users. Another major thing is that maybe Activision isn’t delivering the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War game version for the Xbox consoles according to the Xbox’s Smart Delivery feature as of now which is causing trouble to the users.
We hope that Activision will try to fix this issue asap. For further queries, you can comment below.
