Codemasters confirms ‘DIRT 5’ PS5 crashing issue

News of the crashing error comes just days after EA acquired the developer 

Codemasters has confirmed it is investigating the crashing error which players on PS5 are experiencing in DIRT 5.

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:

  1. Updating the PS5 console and DIRT 5 game to the latest versions
  2. If the error persists, delete and reinstall DIRT 5
  3. Start the PS5 in safe mode and rebuild the database
  4. If the error continues happening, reset the PS5 by visiting Settings > System > System Software > Reset PS5
  5. 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.
