    Just had the same happen to me twice in a row on the new map where I couldn’t move or do anything and the cursor was the only thing I could do it was fine in other maps so I’m not sure what’s the cause I’m on PS4

    Yep, happening to me like 3 out of 5 games so I’ve stopped playing. Spent a lot of money on Tuesday for the DLC and 3 new skins…. Can’t even play. 😩

    Had it happen about 5 times now, annoying when you've added party streamers and have to switch off the game for it to work again

    They just updated on Twitter that apparently this game breaking bug for PlayStation users is not expected to be fixed until Hot Fix two. So can only assume that means a week from Tuesday. This is ridiculous.

    This is happening to my fiancee since the release of the newest Knight DLC. Can we get an update when this going to be fixed?

    Something needs to be done about this its happened at least 4 times a day. I'm losing all my items and add-ons for both killers and survivors. Doesn't matter what character you pick it happens. Behavior have said they won't be sorting this until hotfix 2 and I think they need to sort us out some BPs for the inconvenience. I'm losing pips.

    Same here, on PS5, version 6.400.001

    Did you get a disconnect penalty? Can we at least have those disable until this is fixed, so we can get out of boring games? I've had three inactive survivors in as many games and one inactive killer in two games. Now it happened to me and I feel like an ass for looking like an afk killer. :(

    This is the worst bug for me to ever happen. I lose all my addons and offerings and I feel bad for the people I play against/with. Can DBD get their crap straight and just fix their game already?!??!

    Happened to me. Had to move over to Xbox. Gee, maybe if they gave us cross platform progression (overwatch, cod warzone, etc), it wouldn't be as big of a deal 🤡

    Now I'm forced to smurf 🤷‍♂️

    absolutely ridiculous what BH deliver here again. Everytime when DBD has an Event something happend that you can´t enjoy it.

    and what are you get from BH? a sorry. A ######### sorry for a game that doens´t work even though you paid for it.

    Check this out. When u switch a quest in archive. Restart the game to prevent it. That worked till now for me.

    I've had a few games with no problem, drop a frightful flan into the game and Bam, cursor showing right at the star of the game, so f'ing annoying 😡

    Having a similar issue on Xbox series X where I can't move once the match has started. Hopefully, they fix it for both platforms because I literally can't play at all atm

    I doubt that there's a way to get my pips back, but can y'all at least make it to where I don't lose any further pips if I have to force close the game.

    Same thing to me. (On PS4)

    More precise informations :

    - As I analysed, this bug is for killer or survivor.

    - Whatever the map.

    - Whatever the objects...

    - It's random.

    - I don't see changes about the time, same thing in the morning, afternoon or night.

    - The only thing we can access is the menu during the game.

    It's start for me juste after the last update.

    I make some screenshots and video if the staff would see.

    The only way to go out this bug is to disconnect.... but, that's not fair for other players.

    Always restart you game after choosing a challenge and this bug wont happen.

    Happened to me twice in a row as Wraith on PS4. Dodged a Temple and a Mother's Dwelling match at least.

    It's happened to me twice already. Hopefully this is fixed.

    Same happened to me, I had to shut off my PS4 to fix the situation. For if you DC and try another match you still have the risk of being frozen.

    I was playing on my PlayStation 4 and had that happen to me today while playing against a hag on Rpd. Then the bug happen again in a custom bot match as Legion. The cursor bug usually doesn’t bug on me. But today it did for some weird reason. I had to disconnect from both matches cause I didn’t know what else to do.
