I’ve noticed that Overwatch always takes ~60s to start (no game window opens) on a cold start. The game is installed on an NVME M2 drive, and this had also happened when it was on my regular SSD, so I don’t believe drive speed is the cause. I’ve reinstalled, and it didn’t help.
Warm starts (if I quit and relaunch the client) are fast, as expected, about 5-8s before the window opens.
I noticed that on the cold/slow starts, my external hard drive wakes up, which is odd because I have nothing related to overwatch or my OS on there. If OW is somehow waiting on all drives to be awake instead of just the installed and/or OS drives, that would also explain the difference in startup speeds for cold vs warm (on warm, the external drive is already awake).
Has anybody else experienced something similar or have a solution?
