It's not just consoles. My PC is also experiencing degraded performance despite having hardware that beats next gen console specs (i9-9900k CPU + RTX 2080Ti video w/ 11gigs VRAM + 32gigs DDR4 RAM + 1gig SSD, etc). I'm still well north of 100fps+, but the I still notice the FPS stutter compared to the previous season's glass-smooth performance. Since this season launched, there is considerably more UI lag as I try to change weapon / armor mods, delete items, etc.
This feels more like bad code or non-optimal texture management.
It’s pc fan boys looking to brag about their specification over consoles. It’s so annoying. Load times are dragging because everyone it’s opened it queries the servers for new data. My guess is the menus is interrupting games normal video content rather than appearing on top of it.
