World War Z: Aftermath and New World now supported, too.
Update 9/21/21 12:20pm PT: Clarified Windows 11 support details. Amended text follows: 
AMD’s Radeon Adrenalin driver 21.9.2 just hit the streets, packing support for three new titles: World War Z: Aftermath, Diablo II: Resurrected, and New World. It also has four new bug fixes. 
Besides support for New World and World War Z: Aftermath, AMD notes that Diablo II: Resurrected received a 13% performance boost at 4k Very High settings using an RX 6700 XT GPU with this new driver update, when compared to the previous 21.9.1 Adrenalin drivers. AMD does not mention if other Radeon GPUs saw the same performance enhancements, but we would guess some sort of FPS boost will be visible since GPU driver optimizations normally apply to entire GPU architectures.
AMD’s new drivers support Windows 11 Insider builds, as the full Windows 11 drivers won’t arrive until the official launch. The latest driver has several known issues, but those are to be expected as GPU makers work through the kinks to deliver full Windows 11 support. You can find additional details listed below.
