"what will be fixed"
'Just Cause 3' is out now on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We've reviewed it (see here), and there's little doubt that while the game is very fun, it also has some performance issues. In response to player inquiries about these issues as well as more game-breaking problems, Avalanche Studios has posted a message to all 'Just Cause 3' players.
The key highlight is that while a new patch is in the works, the scope of that patch isn't even yet defined. From my experience, it's understandable that the game in its current state is in a place where Avalanche can collect some more player date before issuing a specific patch plan. Gathering that info should be helped by players reporting issues into customer support (found here) and by player data collected through the Square Enix servers.
From Avalanche Studios:
Just Cause 3 launched yesterday. We've received some great review scores and have been enjoying all the incredible videos and amazing comments you've made so far. We're excited that the game is finally in your hands as we love seeing the crazy things new players do in our massive, explosive sandbox. Thank you for your support!
However, we know that some of you are encountering some technical issues – we’re looking into them all and we’re fully committed to providing you the best possible experience.
We know you’re going to want specific information on when a patch will land and what will be fixed – we would love to give you that information, and we will as soon as we have it. But right now, a little over one day since we launched, we have huge numbers of players in our enormous game world and we’re monitoring all the data coming in.
We need a little bit of time to recreate some of these issues and build fixes. Rest assured though – we are fully committed to making Just Cause 3 as awesome as possible. We already know loads of people are having a blast with the game but we’ll do all we can to make sure everyone is laughing and smiling as they play.
If you do encounter any issues, please contact our Customer Support here: https://bit.ly/JC3CustomerSupport
We’d recommend PC players also visit the Steam forums as there are a number of tips there can could improve or fix some of the issues that have been reported (pinned posts).
So thanks for your patience – we’ll come back to you with more information as soon as we have it.
So there you go. While the game did have a day one patch, a follow-up patch shouldn't be expected soon, but will happen eventually.
