Memory Leak on Linux

I play dead by Daylight through steam on Linux. Everything works smoothly up until recently. It could have been the steam update, but no other games I have tested have had the same issue, and DBD's update was around the same time.

The issue: Once the game connects to the servers a memory leak starts, and eventually all 32Gb of RAM get filled, never clearing to swap memory, eventually freezing my system. The process that is doing it is steamwebhelper, yet no other steam game generates this problem. I've looked near and far for anyone with a similar issue, but haven't found any body with the exact same problem.

The problem is reproduced every-time I try to play.

Additional relevant info is that if backround vulkan shaders is on in steam, the memory leak will happen anytime steam is open. So not sure if it is a DBD bug, but currently the only game doing this to my system.
