If you're stuck on Battlefield 2042's intro cinematic that keeps going on and on, you may want to try some of these potential solutions for this annoying issue.

The bad news about this problem is that players have been reporting it since the game launched and we're yet to see the fix from EA DICE that would purge this issue for good. Luckily, there is a couple of things you can do to fix it on your own.

You'll be baffled to hear that this issue seems to be caused by Microsoft's OneDrive app. Apparently, OneDrive is known to cause quite a lot of problems with games that have their Settings folder stored in the Documents folder, and you've guessed it, Battlefield 2042 is one of those games. 

So, here's what you can do to fix this annoying issue in Battlefield 2042. 

How to resolve Battlefield 2042's "stuck on intro cinematic" issue?

  1. Turn off OneDrive, start Battlefield 2042 and see if the game will get past the intro cinematic.
  2. Turn off OneDrive's automatic startup with Windows. Reboot your PC and start the game to see if the issue is resolved.
  3. Uninstall OneDrive. If turning it off doesn't work, you can't do much but uninstall the program.

If none of this helps, then you're out of luck. Some players report that they were unable to get rid of this problem even when switching to a completely new PC. It does appear that Battlefield 2042 is at fault for this issue in some capacity so the devs will most definitely have to take a closer look at what could be causing it.

Until then, we recommend you arm yourself with patience but that shouldn't be too hard since you're a Battlefield 2042 player anyway.
