While Far Cry 5 has made a relatively positive connection with fans, countless bugs have hindered the experience, and one of the worst bugs yet is sticking players in a never-ending credit loop.
Numerous cases have surfaced recently involving Far Cry 5‘s end credit sequence locking players in an endless cycle of names. After completing the game, subsequent continues of that save file have left players across all platforms forced to watch the game’s end credits every time they sign in. The credits can be fast-forwarded, but not skipped, and considering how many people worked on the game, this still takes several minutes at minimum. Once the credits stop, the game gives players a brief moment of hope that it’s all over before they begin rolling again. The issue can also be initiated by fast-traveling.
The bug can be observed in action in the video below.
Players have tried a number of remedies to get it to stop, including killing their character, which apparently doesn’t solve it. PC players have reportedly devised a workaround, but console players are still stuck. Some PS4 users have attempted rebuilding their systems’ databases at the recommendation of publisher Ubisoft, but most have reported no affect. Since there aren’t multiple save files in Far Cry 5, the few players whose loops will not go away seem to have only two remaining options: start the game over, or wait for Ubisoft to fix it.
“We’re looking into it!” is the only reassurance Ubisoft has given thus far. Someone on the Ubisoft support team reportedly claimed that the latest update fixed this glitch from continuing to happen in new games, but those that have encountered it already should still have problems. Even once the issue is addressed in full, Ubisoft has claimed that the possibility of rescuing save files is low .
A previous game-breaking Far Cry 5 glitch may not have been as much of a time waster, but it was just as crippling. A bugged checkpoint would instantly kill players after spawning, with no way to get out of it.
