Battlefield 2042 “Unable To Load Persistence Data” Error Is Causing Headaches
Posted On November 12, 2021
On the first full day of Battlefield 2042‘s early access launch, the futuristic military shooter is seriously struggling. Players are unable to connect to multiplayer matches due in part to “persistence” errors.
An error message reads, “Unable to load persistence data. Game will return to start menu.” The prompt says players should check their internet connections to try to fix the issue, but it appears to be more serious than that alone.
GameSpot staff on the US east and west coasts are receiving the error message and are unable to load into matches. The game loads a map just fine but then returns the error message before play begins.
