After Batman Arkham Knight another AAA game Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 facing serious performance issue and bugs. There are various issues being reported online about the game on the official Black Ops 3 forums, and the Steam Community forums. The issues range from rendering the game being impossible, it not booting up properly, and if users get to the main menu they can’t select any options. There are a myriad of performance problems, with huge performance issues even on high-end hardware like GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards. CPU usage hits 100%, even on high-end processors.
The game developer Treyarch Studio says to play around with the .ini file for the game, where the studio notes that there are “very low frame rates” on “certain [Intel Core] i5 CPUs” and that it’s working on a fix. The studio has also said that players should enable V-sync and setting the frame rate to something below the refresh rate on your monitor.
It’s very much unexpected when Activision has $100+millions budget and they launched an unoptimized game.
