The saga surrounding the misfortunes of the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight continues today. This time, however, it’s not bad at all. In fact, you could almost say that PC gamers and Batman fans have just received the most promising news to date.
NVIDIA engineer Tom Peterson has said in a recent interview that the company is working directly with the game’s developer to get it up and running to an acceptable standard, assuring fans that it currently looks “fantastic.”
I look at [Arkham Knight] as an example of where Nvidia can help a developer get to market with a quality game. Warner Bros…made a few mistakes getting the game out. It wasn’t fully performance optimized for PC. So now we’re deploying our QA resources and our engineers to make that game as good as it possibly can be.
I gotta tell you on the releases I’ve seen it is a fantastic game. It plays great, it’s tons of fun and the effects are amazing. And I can tell you that when Warner Bros. makes it available on Steam again that people are going to be delighted.
Peterson also continued to reiterate that all of the changes they’re helping to make aren’t necessarily exclusive to those that run NVIDIA hardware in their rigs.
We’re fixing a ton of things that are not necessarily related to us. Some of it may be related to our driver, some not. But at the end of the day the game is the focus and we’re going to make it great.
It’s all certainly sounding like good news, but there’s still no firm date set for when Batman: Arkham Knight will be made officially available again through Steam and other retailers. Stay tuned though for any and all updates concerning the game and let us know in the comments section below your thoughts on these new developments.
