Console players are having a hard time connecting to the servers in Dying Light 2. The Network Disconnected error occurs at the start of the game, when their PS4/PS5 or Xbox One/Series X|S displays the status in the top right corner of the main menu.

If you've run into the Network Disconnected error, this Dying Light 2 guide will provide some potential solutions that may fix it. Basically, you will need to manually restart your connection (on all consoles) to be able to temporarily circumvent the issue. We'll have to wait for an official solution from Techland.

How to Reset Your Network Settings on Xbox One & Series X|S
