Outer Worlds PC - Wireless Xbox controller not recognized or responding


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry for the control issues you're running into.  I put in a report for this so the team can investigate this.  I was curious if the game recognizes the controllers while they're plugged in and not in wireless mode or if they still have the issue.

If you notice any changes, please continue to post information about them here as I will be linking this thread to the report as a reference for the devs.

Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience the controller issues are causing.

Perhaps this is a shot in the dark, but maybe there's a chance the info in this thread will help with this issue:

When Using a Xbox One Controller for PC make sure your Steam is closed because steam loads the controller config and it conflicts with the Win 10 version of The Outer worlds. Hope this Helps.

Not sure if this helps, but an xbox one controller with an USB cable works fine. Can't test bluetooth at the moment since my dongle is broken. Will report back once I get that fixed. 

Yes, same here, I used an xbox controller (non-bluetooth) wired USB and it works.  Will try wiring the wireless on in later.

I also cannot use my gamepad I use with no problems for every other game. I use a Wii U Pro controller with a mayfly adapter that makes it recognized as a 360 controller. Like I said, it works fine with every othger game I have but this game wont recognize it. Really, really disappointing that it works for low budget garbage games but not this.

Any update on this? I've tried it with a wired Xbox One and Xbox 360 controller and neither worked. The same controllers work flawlessly in many other games. I am playing the game with Gamepass if that makes a difference. I've tried running it in full screen. I've tried closing steam which other's reported as helping. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting the controller. I've tried rebooting the system. Nothing seems to help.

Mine wasn't working when connected via bluetooth, even though other games recognized it.  It did work when wired via USB.   

I ended up deleting and reinstalling my laptop's bluetooth/wifi driver, and now it works.

I assume this still hasn't been fixed yet, I've just got a Legion 5 Pro and started the game to find the controller doesn't work, also is there a issue with save games too? Luckily I've only just started the game and when I came back to it today I had to start a new game again as the Load Game option was missing.
