Rocksteady Is 'Working Like Crazy' To Fix Arkham Knight's PC Woes

After a disastrous debut on PC, Batman: Arkham Knight has been pulled from Steam as well as bricks and mortar stores. Rather than leave Iron Galaxy, the studio behind the PC version, to fix the mess, Rocksteady has its "best engineers" on the case.

On Twitter, Rocksteady cofounder Sefton Hill reiterated that the developer is serious about beating the game into shape, agreeing with the "decision" for the game to be pulled:

That said, it looks like Rocksteady will be in an advisor role, with publisher Warner Brothers tasking Iron Galaxy with the lion's share of the work:

Unfortunately, no timeline is provided for an update. On one hand, I'm sure players would welcome any sort of performance patch, but at the same time, one that did little to better the situation or worse, cause more problems, would just compound the angst.

    Id love to condemn them further but details of support are needed.

    I must be the luckiest bastard in the world. My PC copy skips some frames when I climb in and out of the Batmobile. Runs like clockwork at all other times, with everything turned on high.

      Same here, all I did was click optimise on Geforce experience, haven't had any issues yet

        Does that not optimise it for 30fps though?

      Pretty sure you still missing the graphical elements that are included in the console versions though ;)

      Same, at 99% completion now. dramatic cutscenes kind of get ruined when someones face texture decides to not load in and their face is just solid blue tho.

      The game regularly pauses for me. Probably half a second every ten seconds or so.

    They will re-release this title on pc as a "definitive edition" or "remastered"... lol

    Fuck 'em, too little too late. They knew they were releasing a game that is broken for 96% of their player base .

      96% hey? Where did you come up with that number? Fairly sure that PS4 and Xbox One sold more then 4% of total sales of the game buddy.

        How dare you respond with reason, he wants blooooooooood

    I hope this is the final nail in the coffin for iron galaxy. Everything they touch turns to shit.

    "Rather than leave Iron Galaxy, the studio behind the PC version, to fix the mess,Rocksteady has its “best engineers” on the case".

    "That said, it looks like Rocksteady will be in an advisor role, with publisher Warner Brothers tasking Iron Galaxy with the lion’s share of the work"

    Makes sense.

      I am glad I am not the only person who did a double take on this.

    should of given it to monolith with support from rocksteady as Shadows of Mordor being sides being awesome was based on the Arkham games

      I'm still a tiny bit disappointed that Arkham Knight didn't have a surprise Nemesis system.

        I think the nemesis system is one of the best mechanics to come about in recent times.

          Yep. I think I'll give Shadow Of Mordor another playthrough once I've finished Arkham Knight.

    It kind of sucks that because of WB, Rocksteady are going to take the hit to their reputation for this.

      I agree. But it sucks cos most people throw the blame straight at Rocksteady having no idea it's not their fault.
      if you're gonna blame someone, blame WB for approving it... Wouldn't every final decision have to go through them?

    What about the people that got season passes? Which was only for 6months? No new content coz they are working on fixing the original game?
