View Full Version : [Performance Issue] Massive Frame drops/Stutters

03-15-2019, 05:36 PM
After playing a couple of hours in the game, I have been getting massive frame drops or stutters during regular gameplay. I have to restart my system every hour or two to flush my system to mitigate this issue. I am speculating that this issue has to do with memory leaks or rendering textures. The game runs normal when I restart my ps4. As you can see in the video below, I recorded a clip of how extensive these stutters can become. This was one hour of gameplay. Overall, I have spent 10 hrs playing and I was forced to restar tmy PS4 5 times.

My PS4 is the standard launch day edition.
I have 200 gbs of free space in my HDD.
Wired Internet Connection.
Digital Copy.

I did some basic troubleshooting such as rebuilding my database but it doesn't fix the issue.
I'm pretty sure this issue is tied to memory leaks.

Is this issue being looked into?

This issue has been reported and is under investigation.

I will pass your video on to the team.

Thank you.

I want to add to this report that the frame issues are becoming more frequent after this server-side patch.

I can confirm that this does in fact seem more frequent since the latest patch. I ran into this same issue multiple times over the weekend.

I noticed this yesterday, too. Severe lag spikes when looting, after a kill, and throughout main missions. Large parts of the two main missions I played last night were slide shows. Sometimes during firefights, but also sometimes when just running around and looting stuff. These were early missions - 2nd and 3rd on a newly created agent.

I have seen the same issue on PC, btw. Pretty much the same kind of lag, happening in the same circumstances. On PC my agent is level 20.

I can confirm that Im also having this issue, much more likely after longer period of play time. Seems like some memory leaks.

Yeah me too, usually happens after several hours of game play. First I see the drop in the texture quality then shortly after I get the stutters and frame drops.

PS4 Pro with SSD.
