Fix: Battlefield 2042 stuck at waiting for players to join

1 Mins read

Battlefield 2042 might sometimes display a strange alert saying that the game is waiting for players. Let’s talk about what is causing this alert, and how you can fix it.

Battlefield 2042 is open for players to join

Cancel and make another attempt

You can cancel the match and then exit the game. Wait 30 seconds and then launch Battlefield 2042. Wait 5 minutes and cancel the game if it is still waiting for players. This may mean that you will need to go through the whole process again. You might not have enough players.

If the alert continues after you have waited more than five minutes, quit the queue and go back to the beginning.

Cross-play is possible

Battlefield 2042 could get stuck at the “Waiting to players join” screen if cross-play is disabled.
