Black Ops Cold War Update 1.11 Causing Fatal Error

It is unclear as to why the update has caused many PC players to encounter a fatal error when starting the game.

Based on the image posted by Reddit user “idgamerd1”, the error occurs when the game is compiling shaders. During the process, the game stops compiling, leading to the error.

After digging inside the crash reports, it appears that there is some form of conflict happening between the game files and the PC.
