Gears of War 4 is plagued by many issues, but the good news is that The Coalition is actively working to fix them. The company updates the forum thread dedicated to Gears of War 4 issues daily, posting new workarounds and listing recently detected bugs.
If you’re experiencing hitching issues in Gears of War 4, you can now quickly solve this problem. The Coalition recently posted a temporary solution to fix hitching occurring at the beginning of a multiplayer match or during extended gaming sessions.
How to fix Gears of War 4 hitching
- Open four other games
- Allow them to load past the initial splash screen
- Load Gears of War 4.
We have identified a fix for the hitching that occurs at the start of a Multiplayer match on Xbox One in the past couple of days. We have temporary workaround solutions, but we will be rectifying the issue as soon as possible with a small Title Update.
Solution: Open four other games (allow them to load past the initial splash screen) and then load Gears of War 4.
Alternative Solution: As a last resort, you can also uninstall and re-install the game to fix the issue.
The only pre-requisite to be able to apply this solution is to actually have four other games installed on your console.
As mentioned above, The Coalition will permanently fix hitching with a future update. We estimate the developers will push the update in a few days’ time. The Coalition already pushed three updates for Gears of War 4, one addresses matchmaking issues and the other two bring some minor changes to Credits, Gear Packs and Dodgeball rounds.
