    Sorry but why it's not fixed in 2021? We can't build the game because of this and cant release it. This is very critical issue, it must be fixed on 2021.1.

    Is this coming to 2021.1 too? getting the same crash and fixed it by using vulkan, although opengles3 is the preferred api for better device coverage
