    There have been several threads on this. Has been happening for months now.

    ALT F4 in those cases. Solves the issue quick enough.

    this happens every other match i leave

    its not black screen though sometimes, usually its the loading screen and the only reason i know its frozen is because the thingy in the top right corner stopped moving and its been 3x as long as it typically does to exit... its deceptive because the music will continue as if all is well....

    this has been an issue since i started playing in november, sometimes its better, like once every 30 matches, but recently its like a 50/50 chance every time i exit. Its very frustrating especially when in a multiplayer group, having to make everyone wait and re-invite etc.

    Home button, close the app, restart the app.

    Or, as i said, you kick the console right in its stupid face.

    All the time when I quit a game. I also love the locking up it does when you load the game and only get the wall lights of the imperials.

    Then of course when it does load quick, everything moves at the speed of crystal ****.

    So just restart? Already did that. Yeah...

    Quit your log in, go to home on the console, reboot, reload, log in and pray something else doesn't happen.

    Amusingly enough, that was already an existing issue with Battlefront 1. (rarer though, but it could happen)

    See? As Jar Jar Abrams would say, It rimes.

    Rarely, if ever, got it then. Happens quite a bit now. Joy...

  • In my case it came back after the part 2 update. But yes it is back. I have to close the game completely everytime and reopen it. We are not talking about the the black screen which occurs during a match. We are talking about the black screen which occurs after leaving a match before the menu.
  • I started getting it after this last couple of updates.

    Bet it's related to the game trying to reconnect to the server or some **** like that. (as it always happen when you leave a game)

    True, it usually happens to me when I leave post-match.

    It used to rarely happen and I play a lot. It’s now happening quite often.

    it happens periodically for me, usually when I'm quitting after a match is over. the black screen shows up and when you see the loading icon in the upper right corner you know your stuck in the loop. annoying as on ps4 only way to fix it is to restart the bf2 app. usually if I get this issue instead of restarting I'll just close and play something else. not time to deal with these problems.

    Been happening to me the past week. I get one post-game quit. After that if I quit to do a different mode it’s the black load screen on xB1. I have to unplug the XB and plug back in.

    Every single time I quit a match to eat, pee, go to bed, etc etc. Very tired of it. Xbox 1x.
    Find me in Blast, Strike, or sometimes GA, usually playing Officer/Specialist/Aerial... u/n cosworth99. #oldguy
    Add me (xbox Oregon server) if you like
  • I've gotten this 2 to 3 times a day when I'm on regularly?

    This is one of the main reasons I'm about to finally quit.
    The devs seem to randomly pick which problems to cover, while completely ignoring the rest...
    I don't think they care about feedback.

    I'll give em a couple of weeks, maybe a month before I uninstall?
    The game and any "new content" are no longer worth it.
    If I can't play the game, why should I even bother?

    I've found with the number of bugs and frustrations with the game you have to pick and choose what is most important to enjoyment of the game. some of these while annoying are not game breaking. I do still like the game and the only way to enjoy is to look past some of the smaller issues. that being said there is only so many problems a reasonable gamer can take before it's time to move on to games that reward your playtime more heavily.
  • PS4 Here. I get all the things me now. Nothing by to do with your console!
  • I've been getting it consistently since launch. Oddly enough, I have been seeing it less since the last patch. It still rears it's ugly head from time to time though.

    yep this one is really nasty. due to the bad matchmaking i have to quit out of games sometimes in order to not get stomped constantly. every time i quit it goes to Black screen and i have to restart the program. after each time i wonder if its even worth restarting or move to one of the other many games i have on PS4. why deal with this situation?
  • This mostly happens to people who have been in the same lobby for a very long time
