Crashing during loading screen after operator selection after latest patch

Issue Description:
Before the latest patch, I was able to play the game, performance left a lot to be desired but it was playable. I did have a crash or two but that seems to be business as usual currently looking through the other posts here.

However, after the latest patch the game has become literally unplayable for me as I can’t get past the aforementioned loading screen. I’ve tried tinkering with all the settings, updating my gfx driver, no shot.
