If you have faced any of the issues, here are the solutions you can try.

Fix Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Controller Not Working

The reason your controller may not be working in the game is because you have not configured it correctly on the Steam client. Go to Steam > Settings > Controller > General controller settings > check the box for the controller you want to use. The options available are Xbox, PS4, Switch, and Generic.

If the Steam client is unable to detect your controller and lists something else, it may be because you have some third-party controller software running. Go to the Task Manager and disable any other controller-related tasks except the one you want to use. Once the other controller is disabled, follow the above steps and set the right controller.

Now, launch the game and your controller should work now. If the controller does not work, follow the below steps.

Launch the Steam client > View > Big Picture Mode > Library > Games > Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice > Manage Games > From Steam Input, select Controller Options > Force On the Chang the Steam Input Per-Game Settings > restart the Steam client.

Now, the controller should work fine.

He is caught in a loop between writing about games and playing them. It's a vicious cycle. Although he's biased towards PC, you can occasionally find him on the PS5. He does not own an Xbox Consoles but plans on getting one soon.
