Batman: Arkham Knight mess has Warner Bros changing its review process

Warner Bros changes its internal review process after the huge mess that was Batman: Arkham Knight on PC

The PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight has been such a mess for Rocksteady Studios (who palmed the development of the PC port of Arkham Knight to Iron Galaxy Studios) and Warner Bros, that it forced Warner Bros to pull the game until it was fixed. Now, Warner Bros has said that they have since modified their internal review process for all future games after the problems with Batman: Arkham Knight.


Warner Bros' Community Admin 'Yorick' said: "Addressing the PC performance issues is still our top priority and at this time, we believe we have identified a number of fixes for the larger issues that were affecting PC players at launch. These fixes are currently being implemented into the game and once we have been able to do some initial testing, we'll have a better idea on the status of our progress. We'll provide an update on how things are developing next week".

Since the issues of the PC port of Arkham Knight caused so many hassles, Warner Bros has changed their entire internal review process, as Yorick explains: "We can also assure you that because of this latest launch, we are modifying the internal review process for all of our games. For those who are waiting for the updated version of the game on PC, please know that we are working on this every day. For the players who are continuing to play Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, fixes are continually being made to the game as we await the final updated version".

What about all of the upcoming DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight? Warner Bros has said that it will be coming to the PC, but after the studio releases the updated version of the PC port of the game, where Yorick explains: "Our continued focus on getting the right PC fixes in place for the main game has had an impact on the development of all DLC content for the PC version of the game. This means that the Batman: Arkham Knight - Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC will not be available on July 14th for those who are currently playing the PC version of the game. We apologize for the delay and only want to make sure that any content that we offer is up to the standards that PC players expect".
