Infinite match loading...

Platform: PC

* Searched match as Nurse, found a lobby, ready up and then i got loading loop / infinite loading, happened 2 times in row, and had to close the game with task manager.

The screen stays like this, it keeps "loading" but nothing, and I waited like 5-10 minutes already (second time).

    4-5 minutes? I've waited for 10-15 minutes 3 times now. Forcing me to hard quit the game and take a DC penalty. That's on top of the DC penalties i got from boon disconnecting me several times. The game is unplayable atm. Typical Behaviour. Patches are meant to improve the game or at least it does for all other developers. Behaviour somehow manages to f stuff up more each "update".

    Happened to me and my friend as well, but we didn't get any penalty when we re-entered the game... We both closed the game via Task Bar...

    I'm Steam/pc player

    The same problem, I thought it was just me

    At the same time, it seems that you are losing an offering, I have not looked about add-ons, because I have a lot of them

    Have been forced to close application several times. Can't get into a match as killer.

    I've noticed this only happens to me when there is a Mikaela in the match.

  • MitsuiMitsui Member Posts: 35

    The same thing happened to me, the game did not load, however I was waiting a little more than 5 minutes approximately, too much for a loading screen.

  • ItzPixelYTItzPixelYT Member Posts: 613

    This happened to me on Series X loading in on Saloon

  • ACEvHEARTSACEvHEARTS Member Posts: 401

    Game has had hanging load twice tonight and has crashed (dashboarded) twice. Out of like 10 matches, with long wait times (5-10 min) on top. About to shut it down and call it until fixed.

    Xbox One X, playing as Mikaela.

    Got the infinite loading screen on Switch while playing killer. It hung there for a long while before the game completely crashed.

  • callumbnkscallumbnks Member Posts: 6

    Also experienced this on Xbox One, takes about 10 minutes to load into a lobby and as soon as it starts the match its an infinite loading screen until people disconnect. Then immediately after it plays a game crash sound repeatedly until u close the game.

    To everyone with this issueon console, just out of curiosity what model was your console? I have a classic Xbone, i just took it apart and cleaned it out then rebooted it and still have the infinite pre game load sreen.

  • TheMadCatTheMadCat Member Posts: 1,913

    PC, Steam here. I still have the issue (7 AM CEST, Wednesday).

    Happened to me also on Xbox One X. Played Trapper first game infinite loading had to restart. Second game crashed in the end. So I'm not going to play until these things are fixed because I can't relax playing the game knowing it can crash at any time.

    Oh and the survivors brought Resident Evil map offering in the infinite loading game, so perhaps that map is a problem again who knows.

    It is 11:01 P.M. pacific time zone and I waited approximately 11 minutes JUST to get into a party. Then I am stuck sitting here waiting for a loading screen... I've been in this screen since 10:56 P.M. I am a steam player, the Devs supposedly tweeted it was fixed but it is not.

    It normally only takes me a MAXIMUM of maybe two minutes to get into a party and then maybe a minute for the loading screen.. Ridiculous with this update. :\ But nothing can be done until they really fix it.

    Btw my platform is PC/Steam

    Same issue here. Platform is PS4. I lost my only bloody party streamers and as a result a lot of bloodpoints. This is disheartening

    I can confirm infinite loading screens and also crashes when healing inside boon totem areas.

    BHVR this is a major disaster you need to patch this FAST or roll back the update.

    The game is unplayable I will probably have to uninstall and ask for a refund on the DLC

    I am having this same exact problem but I am on PS4. This is the second time in a row. Matches were fine at first I don't know what happened.
