The Callisto Protocol PC version suffering from stuttering issues

The Callisto Protocol PC release is wrought with stuttering issues, according to players on Steam.

“I’m almost an hour in, and it’s rough,” wrote CaptainMcBeardo in a Reddit thread discussing user reviews on Steam.

“The gameplay is decent so far, and it looks great overall, but I can hardly walk in a straight line without my game stuttering like mad and dropping my fps to slideshow levels (on a 3080ti). This really isn’t the state this game should have been released in.”

“StutterStruggle,” added kron123456789. “[Digital Foundry] is going to have a field day with this.”

“I shut it off after about 10 minutes,” said Acceptable_Mode5837. “The bones of a good game seem to be there, but it’s just a stuttery mess right now. Probably needs a few hotfixes for performance and better shader complation.”

Update: A patch has been released to combat the issue, though players are reporting it’s not totally stopping stutter.

The Callisto Protocol was released today; its review embargo coincided with its release and availability of pre-release code was limited. Luckily, Steam users are filling some of the gaps — you can read their thoughts here.
