What are the causes why Ghost Of Tsushima gets stuck at the loading screen?

There are a number of reasons why Ghost Of Tsushima is stuck at the loading screen. While every case may be different, any of the following items must be the cause.

Corrupted game saved files.

This is the most common reason for many cases of Ghost of Tsushima being stuck in at the loading screen. Like ordinary files, game files may be damaged if there’s system-wide changes, like when after updating the PS4 software, or when the game receives updates from the developer.

Random game bug.

Some cases of Ghost Of Tsushima stuck at the loading screen issues are due to random game errors. If you are experiencing this issue on your PS4 only at times, without any clear pattern, you may be dealing with a random game bug.


Outdated game.

For others, the cause of the problem may be due to an outdated game. This can happen if you don’t regularly connect your PS4 to the internet to download system and game updates. 

If your PS4 is always connected to the internet, all you have to do is to manually check if the game needs an update. Otherwise, just let the PS4 connect to the server and check for updates on its own.

PS4 software issue.

Just like an outdated game, your PS4 software needs to be updated from time to time in order to fix known bugs and prevent new ones from developing. You may also need to update if you’re trying to play new games, like Ghost Of Tsushima.

Bad hard drive.

Your PS4 hard drive can go bad just like a regular hard drive on a computer. If this happens, games or saved files may not load or may become totally unreadable.
