    Hi there, I have done all the recommended steps and the game still crashes on my Xbox series x. I recently installed it after having it uninstalled for a while but even after taking the steps, it still proceeds to crash within 0-5 minutes of playing. Noticed the Xbox is pretty hot and maybe overheated, but it’s in an open room with plenty space. If there is anything else I could try please let me know. thanks, ally

      Same bug, after 3 minutes playing, all crash shutting down.
      Very very strange.
      I start COD Warzone and playing 2 hours and nothing happens. Is not overheating console problem. The bug is between Dice algorithms game BF2042 and Microsoft. The game crash when many explosions actions same time simultaneously. EA-Dice Studios need to talk Xbox Engineering teams for this cause……
