CRYENGINE 5.6.1 hotfix available now

CRYENGINE 5.6.1 update released with fixes and tweaks across the engine.

CRYENGINE 5.6.1 is available now from and the CRYENGINE Launcher. Since launching CRYENGINE 5.6, we’ve been listening to your comments on the CRYENGINE forum, social media, Discord and all our other platforms. This update includes fixes to some of the most important issues you’ve raised and includes several fixes that didn’t quite make it into the initial release.

Key improvements include:

  • Visual Studio 2019 not available as an option when generating the engine solution
  • Template projects not being generated due to special characters in the engine path. You should now be able to successfully generate template projects when the engine is installed in the default location.
  • Asserts could not be disabled, and the “Ignore All” functionality was causing undesired side-effects. This is now fixed.
  • Updated Wwise SDK to version 2019.1.3.
  • Numerous stability and workflow fixes.

You can read the full release notes, and the known issues list for the hotfix here.

This update is designed to address some of the more critical issues that have been raised. With a release the of CRYENGINE 5.6, there are inevitably a few gremlins, so keep your feedback coming on the dedicated forum feedback thread, and if you find a bug in the engine, please report it directly on GitHub which helps us to process the issue quickly and efficiently.

Thank you very much! You people are great! You just proved my point on Unity and Unreal 4 to the "naysayers" ;)
