Nine times out of ten, PC games outperform their console counterparts, Batman: Arkham Knight is one of the games that don’t just yet. Issues have come up since the game’s release on PC that slows the frame rate of the game during gliding and using the Batmobile. The PC version of the game was developed by a company outside of Rocksteady. Rockstead has issued a statement saying:
We’re aware that some users are reporting performance issues with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. This is something that Rocksteady takes very seriously. We are working closely with our external PC development partner to make sure these issues get resolved as quickly as possible.
We’ll update this thread when we’ve got more info to share.
Rocksteady has also suggested lowering the specs of the game for a smoother experience. However, due to these issues, they’ve pulled the game from all PC markets including Steam.
