  • First, check the Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed server status. Xbox users can go here and PlayStation users can visit this page.

    • PC users can try disabling their antivirus and firewall and see if it makes any difference. Meanwhile, console gamers can do a power cycle.
    • Shut down other programs that access the internet to reduce traffic in the network.
    • Restart your modem or router to make sure your network device hasn't become flooded with data.
    • Release and renew your IP and flush your DNS to resolve any network conflicts.
    • Try changing your DNS server to Google’s (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) or Cloudflare (1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1).
    • If possible, switch to a wired connection as it offers more stability.
  • Since it is a new game, it is likely that the sheer number of players trying to access the servers simultaneously is causing the issue. If that's the case, you can try to connect during non-peak hours.
