Hitman DX12 Causes Issues on PC, Here’s a Quick Fix

Hitman dx12

We all want DX12 to be an option in more games but for now, Hitman players should avoid turning on DX12. Many users are reporting that Hitman freezes and crashes on DX12.

Many users on Steam are mentioning the same kind of issues. Here’s an example:

I have tried everything . Turning off vsync, lowering down detail but nothing seems to work. Always freeze when you try to enter the yacht in the first mission.

I guess we will have to wait for DX 12 patch cause right now the game is broken in DX 12.

Right now the best solution to this problem is turning off DX12, which fixes freezing, crashes, and all other DX12 related problems. Also, make sure you meet the system requirements of Hitman PC:


  • OS: OS 64-bit Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz / AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 / Radeon HD 7870
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 50 GB available space


  • OS: OS 64-bit Windows 7 / 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1) or Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3,4 GHz / AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770 / AMD GPU Radeon R9 290
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 50 GB available space

Hitman released on PC a few days and early user reviews on Steam aren’t very positive. It is a poor PC port that needs more work. It looks like it is another case of “fix it with post-release updates.”

Even on a GPU as strong as a GTX 970, Hitman is having a hard time holding a decent frame rate. Menus are being criticised for having large buttons and some options are greyed out.

How are you liking the new Hitman on PC? What issues are you facing?
