Arkane Studios has released a new patch for their recently released time looping shooter, Deathloop, which addresses some of the stuttering issues plaguing players.
While the hotfix released yesterday addresses an issue “whereby mouse-based camera movement could result in the appearance of ‘stutter’,” Arkane confess in the brief patch notes that there is still work to be done.
“Additionally, we are looking into a separate, but related issue that we have identified as a factor that may also be a cause of stuttering at high framerates,” Arkane announced, saying that we will be updated in the future “as soon as we have more information.”
Previously Arkane called the performance issues affecting Deathloop’s PC players “a priority” which they are currently investigating, so hopefully, more patches like this one will arrive in due course.
For the time being, the PlayStation 5 may be the platform of choice for smooth Deathloop gameplay, but hopefully, the PC versions will be fixed before too long. Hopefully, when PlayStation’s timed exclusivity period ends next year, Xbox players won’t have similar stuttering issues, however, for that we will have to wait and see.
