Many have tried out workarounds of various kinds, but none helped. Here’s a list of the stuff that has been tried and proven not to work:

  • Changing tiers and levels
  • Joining a random sesssion
  • Restarting your console/PC
  • Going into safe mode or resetting the console to clear the cache

It’s a particularly nasty problem to have, since you’re basically prevented from playing with the character you’ve invested so much in. It looks like the save data has been corrupted on the server side, since nothing you try works. Hopefully the developers find a way around it – many would probably rather stop playing then start over from the beginning, after investing all this time and effort into their main character.

We’re going to keep a close eye on the situation, and we’re going to update this article as soon as a solution presents itself. If, however unlikely that may be, you’ve managed to solve the problem on your own, please share your method in the comments so we can check it out.

    Really unfortunate. I’m the only one who has just been hit with this issue from tonight in our squad. Was working fine last night. Tested making a new character and that is fine but I’m not going to start again after 101 hours on one character. Very much hoping they get to this fast as I’m missing out on playing with my friends. It’s pretty depressing.

    Try this..

    Restart router.
    Turn off your console leave for 30 seconds
    Turn back on.
    Go to multiplayer settings in network settings and run test.
    If all OK it should work and load in your character.
    My xbox was showing no ip address. After doing the above all is working.
