[Help] How to activate Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PC

If you want to link another Battle.net account, you should unlink the account **before activating it ("Log off to switch accounts") and then link Gamesplanet to the correct Battle.net account. You can also create a completely new Battle.net account on the registration page of Blizzard if you wish.
Important Note: A game activated on a Battle.net Account cannot be transferred to another account, nor can the activation be reversed. So make sure that the correct account is linked to Gamesplanet.
