Several Call of Duty: Warzone 2 players have been locked out of the game after a glitch demands they first buy Modern Warfare 2, even if they already own it.
As reported by PC Gamer, the glitch seemingly arrived as developer Infinity Ward administered a hotfix for another issue with the free-to-play game, as even players who’ve logged hours of play-time have been locked out.
There is currently no known solution for the issue and neither Infinity Ward or publisher Activision Blizzard have acknowledged it.
Purchasing Modern Warfare 2 doesn’t work either, as players who’ve owned the game since its launch in October are also locked out. While the two games use the same launcher, Warzone 2 is its own, standalone experience that shouldn’t require any other purchases to play fully.
“I played probably around six Warzone 2 matches with no problem (finished my last match a few minutes ago),” said Reddit user Unf0cused. “Now when I try to play it, when I click ‘Battle Royale Solos’ I get the ‘Purchase Modern Warfare II to have access to everything’ window’.”
The user restarted the game and their computer and tried to join different game modes but nothing has resolved the issue.
