If you’re failing to find more players and suffering from the Call of Duty: Warzone “Lobby emptying bug,” know that you’re not alone, as we here at GameRevolution are also experiencing this error. No matter how long you wait in a lobby, players keep on leaving, meaning the game is stuck in a loop of “Looking for more players.” This is a significant issue as Call of Duty: Warzone matches currently require 150 players before they start. Here’s what we know so far about potential fixes.
Why is the lobby emptying on Call of Duty: Warzone?
If you’ve been sat in a lobby for countless minutes now, wondering when exactly the match will start, then we’ve got some bad news for you. If you’re experiencing the “lobby emptying” bug in Call of Duty: Warzone, you’re going to have to leave and try searching for another match. We’ve been waiting in our lobby for over 30 minutes now, and it’s still looking for more players.
If you were searching for a Battle Royale match, instead try matchmaking in the Plunder game mode. It might not be your preferred game type, but at least it’s got a chance of working, which is currently all that you can hope for.
If you still can’t fill a lobby with players, despite trying to search again and also by swapping game modes, then the next step is to reboot the game, before then trying to reboot your system.
At the time of writing, Call of Duty: Warzone has just launched to Modern Warfare owners, with the game opening up to everyone in a few hours time. Here’s hoping the emptying lobby issue can be fixed before the game rolls out to the masses. Of course, it’s possible that the sheer number of players trying to find matches at the same time is causing issues. Perhaps things will work properly once the demand has calmed down a little!
