Stela not working or crashing on Apple TV 4K issue to be fixed with next update

Stela is an adventure game that has been available on iOS and Xbox One since 2019. Also, its Microsoft Windows (Steam) and Nintendo Switch versions came out in March 2020.

Apart from that, Stela is also available on Apple Arcade which further makes it accessible to Apple TV and iPad users.


However, Apple TV 4K users have been facing an issue where Stela is not working and keeps crashing on the said platform.

Users are unable to play the game because of this issue and users have even pointed out that it starts crashing after a few seconds of launching.

While it is unclear what the exact cause of this issue is, Apple TV 4K users may not have to face it for long.

@skyboxlabs I would love to play your game Stela on my brand new Apple TV 4K but it is crashing right at the beginning. I was wondering if you were already working on a fix?

The game developer, SkyBox Labs, has now acknowledged the said crashing issue stating that they are aware of it.

Also, the game developer has said that they are working a fix and the next update for the Apple TV app will address the issue.

This is ceratinly good news for Apple TV 4K users who are unable to play the game as they might soon get the said fix.


However, it is unclear how long it will take for the next Stela update to arrive as SkyBox Labs has not provided any ETA in the acknowledgement.

It is still good to see that the issue has been acknowledged and it being taken care of by the game developer.

Hopefully, the said update gets released soon so that players can enjoy the game on their Apple TV 4K without any hassle.
