Many players said that the shaders optimization in MW2 cannot complete.

It gets stuck at a certain percentage (e.g., 6%, 50%) and stops optimizing.

“I’m having a bug that prevents me from starting the game. I’ve updated my latest drivers but I’ve been stuck at 6% optimization in the menu for the past 30 minutes”.

“I can’t play on my PC. I’m stuck on 54% of shader optimization. I tried to reinstall the game, and revert the drivers back but nothing seems to help”.

“When I click on play, it just opens up another window for half a second, then IT closes. I tried reinstalling it, scanning and repairing it, resetting the shader optimization, and updating my drivers. Still nothing. Has anyone faced this problem and been able to fix it?”.
