BUG: Fullscreen Black Screen on External Monitor to Laptop

Issue Description:
Having constant black screens during fullscreen/borderless windowed while trying to play from my ultrawide (2560x1080) external monitor. If I click Alt+Enter when in fullscreen I can see the game, but I have the taskbar below. This does not happen when I’m on the laptop screen.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Launch the launcher on an external monitor (preferably 2560x1080 resolution to replicate the same scenario)
  2. Set Fullscreen or Borderless fullscreen
  3. Launch game
  4. Black screen

OS: Windows 10 Pro, Version: 21H2

Okay it seems that the issue is related with NVIDIA’s drivers (specifically G-SYNC) and it is not related with the game, because I saw the issue with some other games as well. I turned it off and seems to work. Apologies.
