Unfortunately, I believe this may be related to:

I’ve noticed the 6600 also appears to be impacted. :frowning:

I’ve found that as long as i don’t ALT Tab while loading into the game i rarely crash.

they clearly didnt test the game on current hardware lol, too many issues with current gen hardware
