If you happen to be using Windows 10 and have your Region & Language -> Languages set to English (Ireland), changing this to English (United Kingdom) seems to fix the issue.

Legend, I've no idea how you figured this out but great find, thanks for sharing!

 

I've just reinstalled Windows for nothing, can't believe something like this started causing a problem all of a sudden.

Hooray @baznugent Its not even something you would consider, although someone said something ages ago about the game being geo locked and they bought the wrong zone and it didnt work.  The other thing to watch out for is there is a limit to how many hardware changes you can make (5) before the game locks out.

My install on windows 10 was already set to the English (United Kingdom) setting, but here is what the config page for region and language looks like so you know you are in the right area of your OS...

 

Click on the windows logo bottom left of your screen

Click the settings cog

Click on 'Time & Language'

Click on Region & Language in left hand menu.

 

you should then see the following.   set as follows and you should be good.

Hi all,

WORKING NOW!!!

Weird solution, guys fix your localization in the game please!

Solution that worked for me:

Changing the default windows language from English (Ireland) to English (US) worked.

The game finally started!!!

This happened to me on xb1. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Once I did that, it held in for a while, but it just did it too me again and hasn't been letting me connect to multiplayer for more than 5 seconds. Wish they would have fixed all this * before release. This is irritating
