Gamethread timed out waiting for RenderThread after 60.00 secs

Steps to Reproduce:

  2. click mouse 1 time or wait for end of opening movie sequence
  3. watch black screen then wait 60s for game to crash 100% of the time

I play on official pvp but cannot even get to main menu. The first time I got this error message I was building in sandbox mode, but now all parts of game are unplayable. No official, no online, no sandbox, no conan. Day 3 now and no feedback yet. Would love to get some direction here. I have done a complete uninstall/reinstall and verified file integrity but nothing works. Everything on Steam works great - this is a conan problem. A resolution before all of my virtual holdings disappear on official would be fantastic. PLEASE HELP


Welcome to the forum.

I haven’t seen any similar issues recently. So it’s possibly an issue with your hardware.

If you have a reasonably stable internet connection, you can use a service like Geforce NOW, to login, and refresh. This will alleviate most of the load on your hardware, and allow you to refresh your build.

Good luck!


really was this easy thank you!
