The Division 2 is now live on PlayStation 4 for those who bought the Gold or Ultimate edition of the game. By most accounts it’s been a smooth early launch experience so far, but that’s not to say everything’s perfect. A number of reports on Reddit and social media claim that, on consoles, the game’s frame rate can plummet while out in the open world, making it virtually unplayable.
It’s unclear what causes this problem to arise, but it sounds pretty bad. Fortunately, there does seem to be a fix. If your frame rate starts to tank and doesn’t recover, a lot of people are saying that simply logging out of The Division 2 (returning to the main menu) and then jumping back into your game clears things up. Alternatively, you can just close the application and restart.
For now this quick fix appears to do the trick, but we’re sure that developer Massive will be taking note and working on an official tweak. Until that arrives, let us know if you’re having any problems of your own in the comments section below.
