Booted back to dashboard?

I noticed while playing the game that sometimes when you go through a doorway (more often bin Arvantville) that I am suddenly back on the Xbox dashboard.
Does anyone else have this issue?

Being booted back to the dashboard means that the game hit a crash in its code, so the console is sending you back to the last running process (the Dashboard). This is common in other games as well which have the same behavior.

If the game crash is not in its own process code and instead crashes in the system/OS code, that's when you get the terrible crash that causes the audio to go bad and the entire system to shut off.

The thing is the boot back to dashboard seems seamless. As in, no bad audio, no freezing, just boom-dashboard.

Yep, that's called a crash! Happens in a lot of xbox one games.

Some games silently load you to the dashboard during a loading screen. Some games you're racing your car through city streets and then BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR then back to dashboard.

Ain't technology grand?

Xbox One or Xbox One X?

Yeah, as others have said, this is a common problem in games on multiple platforms, but fairly common in bigger Xbox One games. It's a bit the console and the game.

Squ4rex really couldn't have given a better answer.

(except that there's a middle ground - the most common really - where there's audio BRRR but goes to dashboard, not system crash - as Paralyzer said)

If it's fixable, they'll likely fix it in one of the upcoming patches at some point.

Just noting in addition that I've had it crash a number of times when using the stores and crafting as well, so if you're doing a whole bunch of that at once be sure to save a few times unless you want to start all over and try to remember what you have or haven't done.

Yup. Shoulda saved during my crafting session. Made a rice ball that sent me to the dashboard...
