Still happening 3 months later in 1 April 2020 in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. I haven't cursed this much in years because of the freezing every 5 to 10 minutes. Noticies it only happens if i stop moving; typically when i'm about to fight.
My PUBG game does the exact same thing. I restart the game and as designed it gets me back in the game where I left off however a few minutes later it will do the same thing and freeze then close the game having me restart once again. After 3 or 4 times when I get back in the game I'm dead killed by another player or by the blue zone. No idea why this is happening.
