EA have released a new patch for EA Sports WRC that, for me, does appear to have fixed the stuttering and general performance issues some users have faced since the product released earlier this month. Unfortunately though, many responses to the Twitter announcement of the patch do suggest many people still have issues.

Patch highlights:
– Stability & Performance Improvements
– Stutter Reduction Improvements
– Crash Fixes
– Earlier Co-Driver Calls

The next patch after this is expected to release in mid-December.
