Dev Error 6036 has been fixed by players by refreshing the data folder of their game and using the battle.net client to fix their game. This hints at the cause to be a corrupted or broken core game file. The corruption could be caused by any number of reasons and Activision cannot be blamed for this. 

Another cause identified through our research is background applications using too much of the system memory i.e RAM. The dev error 6036 popups have been seen to be triggered by this case as well. 

The dev error 6036 is recurring and Activision has not been able to patch this in all its releases as of yet. The reason behind it may be the low percentage of occurrence, however, a game-breaking error like this should be addressed by the people at Activision soon.
