Known in-game issues
Even with the significant upgrade made to the game, there are still known in-game issues that players need to watch out for. They are:
- Leaving the game in the multiplayer menu when suspending/putting your system into sleep or rest mode can cause a network error when trying to access Rankings or matchmaking in Ranked Matches for PS4/PS5, XBOX.
- Changing the Nintendo Switch system clock to a future time and posting scores in online multiplayer and then resetting back could prevent your scores from updating in online multiplayer. Therefore, players are advised not to change the system clock when playing online multiplayer.
