Warner Bros seems to have just given up on fixing Arkham Knight on PC

2 min read


I think we all know that the PC version of Arkham Knight has been a complete disaster. I don’t think I need to rehash over the entire cycle of what happened, so I’ll condense it a bit. The game was broken when it was released on PC, Warner and Rocksteady took ages to fix it – but it was never really fixed properly.

Last month, when the patch that was supposed to fix things failed to do so to the satisfaction of many PC pundits, Warner said that it would offered refunds, but continue to try to fix things.

“We are very sorry that many of our customers continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. We worked hard to get the game to live up to the standard you deserve but understand that many of you are still experiencing issues,” they said on Steam back then.
Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of how long you have played the product. You can also return the Season Pass along with the main game (but not separately). For those of you that hold onto the game, we are going to continue to address the issues that we can fix and talk to you about the issues that we cannot fix. “

One such issues that they’re unable to fix is the ability for the game to work properly with two GPUs – so they’ve just given up. You’ll never get official SLI or crossfire compatibility with the latest in Batman’s adventures. Here’s what the developer says:

“We’ve been working with our development and graphics driver partners over the last few months to investigate utilizing multi-GPU support within Batman: Arkham Knight. The result was that even the best case estimates for performance improvements turned out to be relatively small given the high risk of creating new issues for all players.

As a result we’ve had to make the difficult decision to stop work on further multi-GPU support. We are disappointed that this was not practical and apologize to those who have been waiting for this feature.”

That’s gotta sting for PC players who’ve invested in the bleeding edge ; though I think it’ll hurt future Warner Bros PC games more.

      Almost like EA’s SimCity, one would say.

    I guess they had to make a decision to give up and move on to the next project.

    They better know that the next one will have to be perfect.

      Sadly not many people will bite for their upcoming games if they basically have abandoned their previous title

      So they’re shooting themselves in the foot, their problem is they should’ve rebuilt the game from scratch instead of trying to duct tape their leak, it would be costly but damn they should atleast have taken the pinch since they hired these idiots.

        What they should have done was make the game for PC in the beginning, then port excellence to consoles. Not make something console quality then try to port that to the PC. That was the root cause of this whole fiasco.

      And yet it won’t. They (big gaming companies) will never really give a damn about the end product. They will keep pushing a game right until the release, then get right into the DLC and that’s that. From that point on, you can go play with yourself.

      Rocksteady will definitely have the pressure on them for the next PC release.

      Very curious to know what they’ll do next. I doubt they’ll do Batman. May not even be a DC Comics property.

      Anyway, a real pity about the PC port, it really was an amazing game.

    Just refund it guys. Even if you’ve finished it and it worked fine on your PC.

    Send a message on behalf of the rest of the PC community. We won’t accept complete and utter bullshit releases from hack development and publishing companies.

      I find this a bit sad. Could have been a great turnaround story.

    It’s a shame really. WB was one of the companies I still had a lot of respect for.
    Not anymore

    WB did what the Joker failed so many times to do…kill Batman.

      Funny enough my brother in law said it didn’t give him any trouble when he played it on pc.
