The game has already seen several large patches to improve poor performance on last-gen consoles, but it seems there is still some work to be done to get everything running smoothly. Digital Foundry analyzed the big April 1.2 patch and concluded that while it has improved performance on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and other base consoles, the same “they are still not good enough“.
