In a tweet earlier today, Codemasters confirmed the CE-108255-1 error code is causing the issue. The crash boots players back to the PlayStation 5 home screen, closing DIRT 5 in the process.

The confirmation of the error comes alongside DIRT 5’s most recent content pack and update, which features four new cars, new career events, new Playgrounds options and a number of technical improvements.
In a response to the content pack tweet, Codemasters announced its awareness of the code and stated it is “investigating now”.
The CE-108255-1 error happens across a number of games, which is why Sony Interactive Entertainment’s website features a general guide for fixing the issue.
The methods listed by Sony Interactive Entertainment include:
- Updating the PS5 console and DIRT 5 game to the latest versions
- If the error persists, delete and reinstall DIRT 5
- Start the PS5 in safe mode and rebuild the database
- If the error continues happening, reset the PS5 by visiting Settings > System > System Software > Reset PS5
- If the error still keeps happening, Sony recommends applying for the repair service through its online application page.
No further information has been provided about a fix, or when DIRT 5 players can expect it to release on the PS5.
Meanwhile, EA officially completed its $1.2billion acquisition of developer Codemasters late last week.
