    Hey!

    I'm playing the game on the Switch with the latest patch and Gathering Storm expansion. At a certain very late game point (Close to turn 400 on standard speed) a world congress starts and after all the votes, the game crashes to the Switch menu. This happened to me twice on two different games and I can't seem to get past this point.

    Anyone know of a workaround? Tried starting random wars or doing different moves on the turn before the crash, couldn't find a way to get past this crash.

    And all in all, the game crashes quite a lot on Switch, especially when moving from docked to handheld mode

    Before the update that came with the XPs the game was actually pretty stable, I only experienced two crashes. Something to do with that update.

    Not following Civ6 all that closely, how often do they release patches? Should I expect anything soon or should I just stop playing for now?

    They first released few small patches, then nothing happened in a long time. We do not know how long it takes, but we do know they are aware of the problem.

    I've only been playing since August, but they did do an update in September (big one for the PC with new game modes maps etc, small one for the Switch to just keep resource values the same), then end of November they did this update that brought the maps and UI updates from the September PC update to the Switch.

    They are aware of the bug and have already provided a (even if rubbish) work around so they are working on it. I have no idea how long it'll take to find the fault, fix it and get it to us. My stab in the dark would be January time, but it could be longer. I'll post on here next time I notice that they send a patch, because I'll want to know if it's working for everyone else.

    Apparently a patch has just been sent out, at least some one has posted that they just got one on another thread. I'd imagine that it is a fix. I'll be pleased to be proven wrong if it is!

    So they just released a patch and a saved game that I hadn't been able to finish now works! Seems as though they've fixed it.
