Since the start of March, I've started experiencing occasional stuttering in gameplay that didn't used to happen before, eventually leading up to a flash of a black screen. Sometimes it's just a brief flash that returns to the game after a moment. Other times it just hard locks my whole computer on the black screen while the music continues playing in the background, requiring a forced reboot. I believe it's crashing my GPU as when I close the game, steam and discord's interfaces are all black and require me to reboot them to make them usable again.
I've so far tried having steam validate the files and I've rolled back my nvidia graphics driver to the January update (using a 2070 super) and neither worked. It happens after about an hour of gameplay or in the middle of urgent missions where there's a lot going on at once, and only seems to happen with this game. No other game has done this, and again this never used to happen until around the start of this month
