Batman: Arkham Knight is truly a tale of two games. On one hand, the console version is near flawless, and many gamers have enjoyed its deep plot, fantastic gameplay, and the ability to play not only as Batman’s allies in some cases, but getting to drive the Batmobile for the first time.
However, for those who have tried to play it on the PC version, not so much. The game is full of bugs, to the point it is basically unplayable. Needless to say, fans have been very vocal about this, as many were expecting the PC version to be good. Hence, the blame game began. In a new twist in this plot, it’s apparently not the QA department (the ones who test the games for bugs) that’s to blame for all of this, but rather Warner Bros. Interactive. Sources have told Kotaku that Warner Bros was well aware of the terrible state of the PC version of Batman: Akrham Knight.
According to a QA tester, instead of fixing the game, Warner Bros. Interactive shipped it on PC anyway. “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,” an anonymous QA tester said to Kotaku. “It’s been like this for months and all the problems we see now were the exact same, unchanged, almost a year ago.”
Warner Bros. Interactive reportedly believed the flawed Batman: Arkham Knight game on Windows PC was good enough to ship. If this is true, this will cause a huge black eye for Warner Bros. Interactive and its games. It will no doubt usher a much quicker pace for the fixing of the PC version.
Batman: Arkham Knight is currently available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The PC version was pulled from the shelves due to its various issues and will be re-released later on.
