Yeaaah, i'm pretty sure that if you logged into their database, you will surely found an entry about this bug reported by QA. Sadly, pretty sure the producer saw it, and decided it was not worth fixing it until a later patch.
Yeah it's f**ked up. These days it seems like most games that come out you just have to wait a few days after launch and this crap starts coming to the surface. Seems like soon there won't be anything coming out that actually works except Japanese games (which isn't so bad actually).
I'm really surprised it's the Xbox One with all the issues. I thought with the marketing money Microsoft threw at it, they would spend more time on the version. I doubt Microsoft paid for exclusive Xbox One only bugs. Makes me glad finances made me wait on getting this game.
I've only heard about this now for the first time despite watching Xbox One streams for more than a week now on Twitch. Will be good to know for the future in case it isn't patched by the time I play it, but I'm sure it will be before I pick up an XB1.
Its not just Xbox. I bought this for PS4 and i'm stuck at the first loading screen as well. I tried restarting the software and restarting my PS4 and i'm still stuck unable to play the game yet. Worst part is that I have to watch the 1st cutscene over and over since you can't skip that sum-bitch!
