Modern Warfare Error 656448 Happening After January 11 Update, Here’s How to Fix

Share this:

In case you didn’t know, Infinity Ward rolled out a new server-side update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that fixed a few nagging issues. Unfortunately though, this update also made players see the Modern Warfare error 656448 that’s happening across all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, and PC).

While this might not be happening to everyone, there are enough players complaining that multiple threads about it have sprouted on the Modern Warfare subreddit. Thankfully, there seems to be an easy fix for it, and it’s by clearing your cache and deleting files.

Check out how to do it (using the PS4 as an example) below.

Clearing Cache

The PlayStation 4 doesn’t have a specific menu option to clear cache. However, you can force the cache to be cleared by doing the following:

  1. Turn off your PlayStation 4. Do not enter Rest Mode.
  2. Once the indicator light on top of your PlayStation 4 is off and has stopped blinking, unplug the power cord from the back of your console.
  3. Wait at least 30 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into your PlayStation 4 and turn it on.

Deleting Saved Game Data

Game saves, player profiles, and other game data is automatically saved in the PlayStation 4 System Storage by default. If you suspect that data is corrupt, you can delete it from your hard drive.

Please note: Deleting saved game data is permanent and cannot be undone. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you back up your saved game data to online storage or a USB storage device before deleting it.

Follow these steps to access the System Storage and delete game data:

  1. Open the Settings menu at the top of the dashboard.

  2. Select Storage, then select System Storage.

  3. Select Saved Data.

  4. Choose a game to access the game’s saved data.

  5. Press the Options button and select Delete.

  6. Choose the saved data files to delete, then select Delete.

Multiple people on different gaming platforms have chimed in that this method has worked for them. Hopefully, Infinity Ward can resolve this ASAP, so people won’t have to jump through hoops just to play the game this weekend.
