Warzone Not Loading On Xbox, PS5, Or PS4

Warzone, as a massive free-to-play multiplayer, has widespread issues. But worry not. We’re here to fix Warzone not loading on Xbox and PlayStation consoles

You can check the PC troubleshooter if you’re playing Activision’s Battle Royale on Windows 10 or 11. Console players, though, take a position. 

See, your problems with Xbox One, Xbox Series, PS4, or PS5 are different. Rather than drivers and anti-virus, you’re dealing with corrupted databases, outdated games or systems, and other random bugs.

Because consoles feature simpler operating systems, fixing Warzone not loading should also be easier. In particular, if other games work on the console, you can be certain the problem comes with the title.

Warzone Not Loading Xbox, PS5, Or PS4 Causes

We’re dealing with the causes of three different consoles, but we can trim down the issues into a simple list: 

  • The Game Is Outdated: Many players’ main problem with Warzone is its download size and constant updates. If your connection is slow or your hard drive is tight on space, it can be difficult to keep the game updated. And when it’s not, it won’t open. 
  • The Console Is Outdated: Similarly, you need to keep the console updated to run multiplayer games. That’s because updates come with patches, fixes, and performance upgrades. 
  • There’s Corruption in Your Console: Various elements on your Xbox or PlayStation device can suffer corruption due to random bugs, power surges, update interruptions, etc. It affetcs the DNS cache, the database, or the OS itself. 
  • The Game Files Are Corrupted: Warzone’s game files may be corrupted. It’s more common than you think, given how many times it needs to update and download additional files.

These are easy to fix problems, provided that your console works properly and normally. Instead, you can play all of your games, browse, and use your console as always.

However, CoD: Warzone gets stuck in the loading screen. Alternatively, as you open the game, you may see other errors, such as ” Dev Error 6034” and other error codes.

Regardless, it’s difficult to pinpoint the root of the error. Therefore, you should try the fixes, one by one, until you find the one that works.

The alternative step on PlayStation would be to delete the corrupted files. We’re going to review that on the next fix.

The process to delete these files is like so:

  1. Go to Settings. GamerCityNews ps5-settings Warzone Not Loading On Xbox, PS5, Or PS4

Uninstall the Game on Xbox

Sadly, sometimes, there’s no other option. If nothing else works on Xbox, you’d have to uninstall the game and then reinstall it.

The Xbox doesn’t has an alternative to PlayStation’s database rebuild option. So, if a game is corrupted, it’s very difficult to restore it to normal.

  1. On the home screen, press the Xbox button.
  2. Go to My Games & apps. GamerCityNews xbox-games-and-apps Warzone Not Loading On Xbox, PS5, Or PS4
  3. Highlight Warzone.
  4. Press the controller’s menu button.
  5. Select Uninstall.

You don’t need to worry about the save data, as Warzone is an online-only game. Then, to re-install the game, here’re the steps:  

  1. Go back to My Games & apps
  2. Select Full Library.
  3. Select All Owned Games.
  4. Highlight Warzone and select Install.

It will re-download, and you can try playing it again after it finishes.
