Several hours ago, we reported that the latest version of Civilization VI on Switch introduced a bug that causes the game to crash before achieving victory.
According to further reports and investigations, the bug only seems to occur if players are about to win through a “cultural, science or religious victory”. In addition players have also begun receiving responses from publisher 2K’s customer service, revealing that the developers are aware of the problem and are currently working on a fix for it.
Thank you for taking the time to contact 2K Support! The development team has been notified of this issue and are currently working toward a solution. However, we do not have visibility on their progress here in customer support, and therefore don’t have a timeline on when a fix will be implemented.
Furthermore, the customer service reps also revealed a possible workaround so that players can avoid a crash: Declare War on the Civ responsible for them.
A discovered known workaround is to declare war on the Civilization that is causing the crash right before you end your turn. This seems to alleviate the crashing in most instances. In order for you to know which Civilization is causing the crash, you’ll have to pay attention to which Civ’s turn it falls onto immediately before the crash happens. Once discovered, reload the save, declare war on that Civ and hit Next Turn. I hope this workaround helped out. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
That said, it seems that this suggested workaround doesn’t seem to be working for everyone, and the issue still remains. Hopefully, the developers will be able to put out the proper fix for it soon.
