Gunfire Games has said it is still working to address a PlayStation 5 friend invite issue that has blighted Remnant 2’s launch on the console.
Remnant 2 is meant to let players invite friends from within the Friends menu under the System tab, but for some reason this screen was absent from the PS5 version of the game.
In a tweet, Gunfire said it had identified the issue and planned to release a fix for it soon. The first step is the addition of a friend’s list players cannot currently interact with. Gunfire said it’s working on making it so players can invite friends from that list. “Sorry for the trouble!” Gunfire said.
PS5 players: We’ve identified the PS5 friend invite issue and plan to have a fix out for it very soon!
You may notice there’s a friend’s list that you can’t interact with — it’s the first step in fixing the issue and we’re working on making it so you can invite friends from…

The well-received looter-shooter soulslike is currently the third best-selling game on Steam, although earlier this week it topped the chart. It enjoyed a significant launch on Valve’s platform, with close to double the amount of concurrent players than Remnant: From the Ashes had at launch. At the time of publication, Remnant 2 was the 12th most-played game on Steam with 50,679 concurrent players and a peak today of 83,792.
While the first Remnant did well enough to justify a sequel, it’s clear Remnant 2 has attracted a much larger audience across PC and console. IGN’s Remnant 2 review returned a 9/10: “Where Remnant: From The Ashes was a strong first draft, Remnant 2 is a revolutionary sequel and a sterling manifesto for the looter-shooter soulslike,” we said.
One of the most-requested features so far is crossplay. At launch, Remnant 2 does not have crossplay between PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. Gunfire has yet to announce plans to add the feature.
If you’re playing the game, it’s worth bearing in mind Remnant 2 has a post-credits scene you won’t want to miss.
