To end a concentration spell early, simply click on the small “X” button on the top right corner of the spell icon. Using it will cancel the concentration spell.

As for when you are trying to cancel it on a controller then here is what you do:

  1. Open the radial menu for the character that has used the spell. Press R1 or RB for it.
  2. Hover over the concentration spell.
  3. Now, press and hold the Y button or triangle button to cancel concentration.

The above steps for the controller also work when you are playing on a Steam Deck.

If for whatever reason the above method fails to work then you always have quick tricks like taking damage or casting another concentration spell as mentioned above. Lastly, you can also use a long rest to end it.
