Nvidia's latest driver causes Watch Dogs 2 to crash on startup

 
Nvidia's latest GPU driver, version 384.76, has been found to prevent Watch Dogs 2 from starting, preventing owners from playing the game.  
 
Right now there is no known fix for this issue, aside from rolling back your drivers to Nvidia's previous version. This bug will cause Watch Dogs 2 to crash back to desktop after starting the application, though the issue is noted deep within Nvidia's patch notes.

And this is why i haven't updated my drivers since last year, Nvidia have a habit of breaking older stuff in their rush to claim the newest shiny object.Quote

Hotfix driver incoming I predict. Gladly I finished the game. I'll do another play through when I have a better GPU in the future, because the game looks stunning.Quote
