Both Nvidia and AMD released an update for their graphics card on 19th March that has a hotfix for a range of Call of Duty errors.

Consider Upgrading the System GPU

One of the most common reasons for dev error 5759 is your system does not meet the minimum system specifications, particularly the graphics card.
