After the latest patch, when I start the game, I get the normal splash screen. There it states to press "a" to continue. I press A and it goes to the main menu. At that point I lose the ability to use the controller. Nor does my mouse or keyboard respond (note - I can still alt tab out, and my controller works fine in other games).
Even if I disconnect my controller, the keyboard and mouse still do not work in the game. If I reconnect my controller, still nothing.
I turned off the overlay with ubisoft connect, but that did not work.
I re-installed the game, that did not work.
I tried a different XBOX One controller. Same error.
The game is now completely un playable. It is so odd that it responds to the initial "a" press and then bamn! Nothing.
Any other thoughts or am I just SOL?
