Well this is a tad bit surprising. A new report from Kotaku claims that Warner Bros. knew that Batman: Arkham Knight had major issues on the PC but decided to ship and sell it anyway. This information comes from a quality assurance tester who worked on the game “for years”:
“I will say that it’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the game was in such a horrible state. It’s been like this for months and all the problems we see now were the exact same, unchanged, almost a year ago.”
Kotaku says that they spoke with two anonymous sources during this past week “in hopes of explaining how the broken PC version of Arkham Knight made it out the door.” These sources said that WB knew of the issues that plagued the PC verison of Arkham Knight but they thought it was “good enough” to ship and sell as is.
Kotaku has reached out to WB but the publisher has not responded at this time.
I recommend going over to Kotaku to read the full piece, which included great quotes, like this one from their QA source: “Getting it to work on consoles was impossible for months. That’s part of why the game got delayed so many times, they were totally unprepared for how hard it was on next-gen consoles.”
