- Other minor crash/stability fixes
Community Manager PezRadar mentioned on the same Blizzard forum that the dev team is currently investigating EU reports that the game isn’t launching on PS5 under the new patch. “We are currently working on reverting the patch on PS5 in EU and will have a new one in the next day,” they said.
