Deathloop, the latest action adventure title from Arkane Studios of Dishonored fame, has scored really well with critics. While performance on PS5 is generally pretty good, the story is somewhat different on PC. On Steam, it currently has a “Mixed” user review score with roughly 64 percent being “Positive.”

Even among those, there are complaints of stuttering and poor performance with some blaming Denuvo, the anti-piracy DRM, as the main culprit. A community manager for the title spoke about the same on Reddit and noted that, “Regarding performance we are aware of reports that some PC users are experiencing stuttering issues in Deathloop. We’re actively investigating the issue right now as a priority, and will update you with more specific information as soon as possible.”

Whether Denuvo is actually the cause or optimization issues are to blame remains to be seen. As such, even the PS5 version has its share of issues, from screen-tearing in certain cutscenes to slight frame rate drops and the occasional. You can read more about it in our official review.

Deathloop is currently available only for PS5 and PC due to being a one year exclusive for Sony’s platform. Stay tuned for more details on subsequent updates and patches in the coming months.
