If you’re diving into Dauntless for the first time, then you’ve got a lot to get used to. If you’re one of the unlucky few finding themselves getting suck on matchmaking in progress, then you’re probably confused. What exactly does this error message, and what exactly is the Dauntless queue time? We’re going to answer all these questions, and any others you might have surrounding this subject, right now.

Dauntless Queue Time | Matchmaking in Progress message

Dauntless Queue Time

If you’re loading into Dauntless during the game’s busy hours, then chances are you’re going to find yourself running into this error, at least here at the start. Launching with full cross-platform play support across three consoles is never easy, but Phoenix Labs has done a solid job of pulling it off with as few hitches as possible. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been without issue and some players have found themselves stuck on the matchmaking in progress screen.

If you’re one of the unlucky people who find themselves stuck on this screen, then you have a few options available to you. You can exit out of the game by closing it out on your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC. This will allow you to relaunch the game, which can allow you to try connecting to the servers once more. Doing this won’t always fix the issue, though. Sometimes it can even cause more issues by resetting your position in the login queue.



When you find yourself running into the matchmaking in progress message, the best thing to do is just wait. By waiting you’ll keep whatever place in the queue you have (if a queue has been put into play by the servers). After several moments the game should either load you in or kick you back to the main menu with a message saying it failed to connect to servers. Once it does that, you can easily relaunch via the play option and try to load into Ramsgate. While being patient might not be the quickest resolution, it’s honestly the best thing you can do when your game gets stuck on matchmaking in progress.

We’ve seen a number of issues with the servers seen Dauntless launched out of Early Access on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 21. The servers use a lot of the same features as Fortnite, though, which means they should be back up and running to full snuff before too long. Normally you’ll still see the matchmaking in progress message when you load into the game, but it shouldn’t last very long.

Dauntless Queue Time | All Servers are Full message

Dauntless Queue Time

Another error message that players might run into happens much sooner into their attempts to load into Dauntless. This message state that all servers are full and then gives players an estimated queue time. This number can fluctuate from numbers as low as two or three minutes, up to much higher values. This is a feature we’ve seen in play since Fortnite first launched its Battle Royale mode, drawing in thousands upon thousands of players.

You shouldn’t run into this issue too often, as it usually only happens when the servers are first coming up or have gone down. Considering how stable Epic Games has managed to keep Fortnite servers over the past several months, it’s unlikely that will be much of an issue once the launch craze for Dauntless slows down a little. While this message is a bit more annoying than matchmaking in progress, there isn’t anything you can do but wait and try to play again later on if you don’t feel like waiting through the queue time.

At the end of the day, you have to realize that Dauntless launched with full crossplay support, which isn’t something we’ve ever seen before, at least so early into a game’s life cycle. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for any other possible fixes to this issue, and you can check out our guide on how to fix the infinite loading screen bug if you’re having trouble even creating your character. For many of these issues, there is no solid solution until Phoenix Labs releases an update and stabilizes the servers a bit more. Until then, all you can do is be patient and keep your eyes glued to GameRevolution for any additional information you might need to help you take down Behemoths in Dauntless.
