Striking Distance Studios’ latest survival horror title The Callisto Protocol has received patches that addresses its stuttering and frame rate issues.
Following its launch on December 2, players complained of performance issues like stuttering on the PC version, and frame rate drops and crashing on the console version. This was the reason behind the “Mostly Negative” reviews for The Callisto Protocol on Steam.
Thanks for your patience. A PC patch is now available to improve gamepla stuttering issues due to shader compilation. After updating, you may see temporary stuttering in the game menu the first time you launch the app. We are working on further optimizations in the days ahead.

“To sum this up, the consistency of quality is all over the place and wild difficulty spikes are wild,” one review on Steam read.
There are patches live for all consoles that should fix frame rate and crash issues that some of you have reported. We are listening, working hard on updates, and will have details to share on more upcoming improvements early this week. Thanks for your patience.
