(PC) 343: PLEASE Support DirectX 12 Feature 11 GPUs!

Even if this doesn’t affect you, kindly listen. Maybe this can be resolved if someone over there knows about it.

Unfortunately, this game doesn’t support GPUs which, while support DX12, do not have Feature Level 12 or higher. Upon launching the game, if your GPU isn’t up-to-date in this specific regard, you will be met with this error:
Could not find compatible Graphics Device due to the following missing feature: Hardware Tiled Resources Tier 2. Please ensure you have a DirectX 12 compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer.
_Suffice to say, my drivers have been checked, reinstalled, etc. and everything works fine.)

This is across the board on all versions of the game in all the marketplaces.

This is a major problem, because this issue prevents the game from launching on GPU specs that are advertised as being sufficient for the game. I’m running an original GTX Titan (yes, it’s old, but with the GPU shortage going on, a lot of PC Gamers are without options), which SHOULD be able to run this game just fine according to the game as it’s advertised.

I, along with other users who have experienced this, have supported multiple support tickets about the issue. Unfortunately, even upon requesting manual review, we are told to direct ourselves towards the Community Forums. Unfortunately, this isn’t much of a solution (beyond assuring me that it isn’t just me, if that counts).

The only way I can interpret this response is “if people make enough of a stink about it maybe we’ll consider it”.

So, 343… Any plans for supporting DX12 Feature Level 11 GPUs any time in the future?
