RoboCop: Rogue City has seen a positive reception from critics and players alike. The game runs on the Unreal Engine 5, and like the other UE5 games, at the time of writing, it’s facing errors and issues. PC users report that they are unable to play the game as they are experiencing the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error. In this RoboCop: Rogue City guide, I will list fixes that will help PC users resolve the DX12 not supported error.
RoboCop: Rogue City DX12 Not Supported Error Fixes That’ll Help
DirectX is an API that is necessary to render games and DirectX 12 is the latest rendition of this API. DirectX 12 also allows developers to enable RTX features, DLSS upscaling, and more. However, RoboCop: Rogue City players are experiencing the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error with the following error message when they launch the game.
DirectX 12 is not supported on your system. Try running without the -dx12 or -d3d12 command line argument
There are multiple reasons why you are experiencing the DX12 not supported error like outdated Windows, outdated GPU driver, bug with the command line argument, and more. The following are the fixes that will help PC users resolve the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error. Also, see our RoboCop: Rogue City Fatal Error fixes if you are experiencing this particular error.
One of the main reasons for the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error to pop up when launching RoboCop: Rogue City is the outdated Operating system. If you are using an old Windows 10 or 11 build, it’s the reason the game is crashing with the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error. Update your Windows operating system to the latest build and the error will be fixed. Open Windows Settings > Windows Update > click “Check For Updates”.
Update GPU Driver
Another reason for the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error to occur is your GPU Driver. You are either using an old GPU driver version or the driver installed is incompatible with RoboCop: Rogue City. Update the driver to the latest version or install another driver version if you are already using the latest GPU driver. Also, ensure you do a clean installation to minimize the risk to settings from the previous driver install to interfere with the new driver.
You might be missing some important DirectX files or the latest DirectX isn’t installed on your system, which is why RoboCop: Rogue City is crashing with the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error. Install/update DirectX and the error will be fixed.

Use -d3d12 Command Line Argument
I know it seems weird to use the -d3d12 launch option as the error suggests that it’s the reason why you are unable to play RoboCop: Rogue City. But PC users report that using the -d3d12 Command Line Argument fixes the “DirectX 12 is not supported” error.
