PlayStation 5 users are having difficulty playing Call of Duty: Warzone due to an influx of bugs and crashes.

Although, it isn't just Sony fans who are feeling the frustration of this recent epidemic. Across Warzone's available platforms, players from Xbox to PC and everything in between have cited an increase in developer errors and crashes keeping them from the game. This has led to several players taking to social media in order to vent their frustrations—including notable names such as Dr Disrespect, who suffered multiple issues during a recent six-hour livestream.

Here's what we know about Warzone crashes on the PlayStation 5 (PS5).

Why Does Warzone Keep Crashing on PS5?

At the time of writing, there is only one official solution from Raven Software: turning off Texture Streaming. This can be done by following the steps below:

  1. Boot up the PS5 console.
  2. Launch Warzone.
  3. Navigate to the "Options" menu.
  4. From the Option menu, select the "Graphics" tab.
  5. Find the "On-demand Texture Streaming" listing while in the Graphics tab.
  6. Set Texture Streaming to "Disabled."
  7. Confirm the new settings.

Players may notice a difference in the game's visuals after this change.

Fortunately, the PS5 tends to be affected at a lower rate than Xbox consoles or PCs. Not that this makes crashes feel any better when they do happen—but it does appear that the console is a bit more stable than its competitors. None of this matters when the issue is with the game application's software, itself, however.

For now, those still suffering constant crashing may just have to wait for a real fix.
