The Callisto Protocol stuttering, lagging, freezing on your PC? Here are the settings to use to improve FPS & performance.

A new game launch comes with the usual teething issues of stuttering problems, missing skins and online connection problems. Unfortunately, The Callisto Protocol players on PC are facing issues related to stuttering, lag, game freezing, and fps drops.

This is a launch-day problem because Steam’s review section now has “mostly negative” reviews mainly due to the stuttering issues. It makes the game’s performance poor on day 1. UPDATE: Thankfully, the developers have released a day-one patch that fixes these issues, so make sure to update.
