So here are all the key data points we’ve gathered on this bug:
1 - Some people have it. If you have it, it’s present every time.
2 - It’s present on both Xbox and PS4.
3 - The pause gets worse the longer you play.
4 - Resetting the game brings the pause down to it’s minimum level again.
5 - If you have the bug, you won’t see it if you log in from a different console.
6 - Different people playing different accounts on the SAME console may or may not both see it.
7 - Some people have the bug stop after some period of time.
At first we thought it was a memory error - mostly because of #3 & #4. But if that were the case, then #6 and #5 make no sense.
Then we thought it might be a server call issue - possibly tied to accounts with bad data. #1, #2, and #6 support that theory. But #4 and #5 break that theory.
Then we thought it might be an achievement call - which is console-specific. But #2 breaks that idea, since our two platforms handle achievements differently.
So again, our best hope is that the next patch will have touched enough things to correct it.
