Why is it taking so long to get a fix for driver instability >17.7.1?

Personally, I only really play overwatch much at the moment, but I've noticed that essentially everyone playing overwatch with amd/ati cards is currently stuck on 17.7.1 because anything newer crashes.

 

Recently windows silently decided to upgrade my gpu drivers again and I was suddently getting bluescreens every few minutes in overwatch and sometimes just doing normal things like watching videos in chrome.

 

I sincerely don't understand why the driver codebase can't simply be reverted for now until the issues are actually fixed. This scenario is so frustrating that it's now unlikely I'll even consider AMD for my next video card nevermind cpu...
