Black Ops 4 Blackout Xbox One X Freezing Fix

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s problems keep rearing their heads since developer Treyarch updated their first-person shooter title. A Black Ops 4 Blackout Xbox One X freezing issue has been plaguing those playing on Microsoft’s console since Tuesday’s patch. Is there a Black Ops 4 Xbox One X freezing fix for this or not then?

What is the Black Ops 4 Blackout Xbox One X Freezing Problem?

Players have taken to the Black Ops 4 Reddit page to seek answers as to why their games keep crashing in Blackout on Xbox One X. This thread, for example, shows that gamers are being met with their games freezing right at the end of Blackout matches. One user even stated that it had happened to them 12 times out of 30 matches, which must have been frustrating for those wanting their battle royale fix.

The issue appears to only be affecting Xbox One X owners, so Xbox One and Xbox One S players should be okay. It does seem strange that only one of the consoles is being bugged by this, but it could have something to do with the processing power of the Xbox One X or the Black Ops 4’s servers.

Is There a Black Ops 4 Blackout Xbox One X Freezing Fix?

There is now, yes. Treyarch took to their official Twitter account on on January 3 to reveal that they had released a patch on Xbox One X that would solve the problem with the game freezing in Blackout mode.

The statement in the tweet read: “We’ve released a patch on Xbox One to address intermittent freezing issues during late-game play in Blackout on Xbox One X. Thanks for your patience!”

This should resolve the problem for many who had been experiencing issues on Xbox One X, so you’re free to dive back into Black Ops 4‘s battle royale mode now.
