Dead by Daylight is an asymmetric multiplayer survival horror video game that has been developed and published by Behaviour Interactive Dead by Daylight back in 2016 for PC followed by consoles. Although the title has received mostly positive reviews on Steam and has been delivering updates to date, it seems that plenty of players are encountering the Dead by Daylight infinite loading screen issue.
According to several reports, players are getting the infinite loading screen while loading into a match and the new survivor is in the lobby. Mostly the players are getting affected while loading into a match for sure. Now, it may vary with playing as a survivor or a killer. Now, as per the Day by Daylight forum, developers have recently deployed a patch fix for Steam. This update won’t affect crossplay. If this works, then they’ll release it for other platforms too.

Well, it’s needless to say that still players are facing the same infinite loading screen issue. So, it’s quite frustrating for the affected Dead by Daylight players right now. The issue becomes widespread because not only the Steam users but also Xbox and PlayStation console users are experiencing it for a while.
You might’ve fixed the connection to the store issue, but the infinite loading screen is still there! And I was going to buy some DLCs but I don’t think I’ll be spending my money on this garbage game. Every new patch makes the game unplayable 🤬
