I'm on pc, specs are windows 11 pro and it's up to date, i5 12600k, msi b660-a pro mobo, 32gb corsair vengeance lpx 3600mhz cl16 ram set to 3600mhz, Kingston 500gb m.2 boot drive (315gb free), crucial p5 plus 2tb m.2(844gb free), 2x Samsung 860 Evo ssd's(233gb free and 916gb free), msi gaming x trio 3070, all drivers up to date.
Just got the game on steam, and it makes it past the ubisoft screen and Nvidia screen and just stays infinitely on a black screen with a spinning circle and cpu usage drops to .5% for GRW.
No anti-virus to interfere, have never used one on my gaming rigs, all ubi and grw and steam apps are allowed thru firewall, no warnings/errors from windows/Microsoft, I have no problem with my other ubi games (farcry 5/6) but they are both thru ubi not steam.
I have validated files, Uninstalled the game, reinstalled, even moved it to boot drive with all other ubi software then back to the crucial p5 plus with my other ubi games and no luck.
Already have a ticket in w ubi. Any ideas? I'm at a loss
Edit: have now removed and reinstalled redist files also, no go
Edit: cleared steam download cache also
Edit: also deleted ubisoft launcher cache and wildlands folder from documents/mygames and no go, then verified files again, rebooted pc and still stops on load screen
Edit: ubi responded today,8/10/22 by saying my gpu driver was out of date (update came out last night and was immediately installed, as always) also their solution was dual monitors may be causing the issue, so unplugged 2nd monitor and made sure display settings was correct and still no go, verified files for the 100th time also.
