Modern Warfare 2 is great fun but has not been out for too long and because of this means that the chances are it will have the occasional problem like the one you are currently having with not being able to sign in on MW2. So below I have put together different methods that you can do to fix this on your Xbox console.
What causes MW2 sign-in issues?
There are a couple of things that can cause this error to happen on your Xbox. For example, there could be a problem with the MW2 servers which will also cause this to happen, and not being connected to the internet.
Any of these things could make you have an error such as “Failed to login” or you may even get error codes such as the BLZBNTBGS7FFFFF01, which is also common in COD Warzone.
Why am I stuck on the logging into Demonware message on Xbox?
If you were wondering what is Demonware, then it is a software development company linked to Activision. That is why you will see a Demonware message on the MW2 login screen.
If you have not launched MW2 yet, then you may find it takes ages to load and sign in! So when you get to the first loading screen and see “Status. Logging into Demonware” and it takes a while, don’t panic and think it’s stuck!
Just give it a little time to load and sync everything up, and then you should be able to get past the MW2 logging into Demonware message. If it has been more than a reasonable amount of time and you are just stuck on the logging-in screen, then see the methods below to fix this problem.
