As stated in the title, my game keeps crashing every 5 - 10 min. I'm able to get into the game and select a start, but after that the crash is inevitable. I'm using the Game Pass version and I've tried reinstalling my game and drivers. Is anyone else having this issue? Most of the posts I've seen have been about not being able to launch and issues before getting in the game.

Same here (Royal Edition), updated everything and tried to disable firewall. At a certain point after starting a game it just crashes, even after reloading the save it keeps happening on the same moment as before.

So I saw a bunch of people saying that their Avast was causing issues. I was using Windows Defender because I'm lazy so I downloaded Avast so that I could disable it. This worked for like 30 or so minutes before crashing again and now it's crashing within 10 of me getting into the game. So something's still broken, but I got antivirus now so it's not a total loss.
