Warner Bros.: “Arkham Knight Was Perfect On PC”
Last week, a statement sent from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight has been suspended in sales. After recent backlash from customer complaints of frame rates dropping and graphics seizuring and not living to its full promise, Warner Bros. had pulled the game from STEAM, and no longer was the game available.
In the statement, the following was said:
“We want to apologize to those of you who are experiencing performance issues with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC. We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards. We greatly value our customers and know that while there are a significant amount of players who are enjoying the game on PC, we want to do whatever we can to make the experience better for PC players overall.”
This has not left many happy however amongst WB Entertainment…
Our insider source revealed during an emergency meeting, one executive amongst the head honchos of WB was dissatisfied at the thought of “bending over to the pointless reaction”, to then proceed starting an angry blog post venting frustrations and explaining the actual advantages to the so-called “problems” found in Arkham Knight.
“To complain about the frame rate dropping on your ‘super PCs’ THE MOMENT you drive the batmobile is ridiculous,” the excerpt of the post tells. “Our goal was to actually add realism to the driving simulation part of the game. What you felt was a drop in frame rate was in actual fact true processing speed of just how quick the Batmobile rides – implying that it causes stuttering effects! (which BTW, still runs smoothly!). Does the game fall in rate? Or are your eyes just not able to catch up to the incredible realism and work we have put into this? There is no problem with the game at all, it is our best yet and you all have taken that away from us.”
The six-paragraphed rant was sent amongst close friends including employees within the company (of that included our insider). It was then quickly removed, thanks to Google Mails new ‘undo send’ feature no less, with some having managed to grab screenshots.
Whatever the case, Batman: Arkham Knight I’m sure will have a better reaction on its release to Linux, Mac and SteamOS, which are all slated for a fall 2015 release.
