The PC version of Batman: Arkham City was delayed by a few weeks to November, which resulted in a lot of backlash and disappointment by the fans who wanted to play it on the PC, but Rocksteady says, it will be worth the wait.
Game director and Rocksteady co-owner, Sefton Hill said that, while they couldn’t give a proper explanation, the PC gamers should wait a bit to get the best version.
“What’s great for us is we have gamers who are real console gamers and gamers who are PC gamers. I guess, generally, I would consider myself more of a console gamer. I do play more of my games on console. But then we have people in the office who are really hardcore PC players, and they will always pull me up and say, we need to sort this out, we need to sort that out,” he said.
He also mentioned what PC gamers should expect from the game.
“It’s something we’re aware of,” Hill explained. “If you do have a super powerful high-end PC, you are going to see higher detail textures. You are going to see a more richly realised world. But having said that, given there are so many console gamers in there, we’re always fine-tuning to get the game to run super smooth on Xbox and PS3. The console versions look great as well.
“All of the source textures and assets are done at a very very high res and we make them work on all the different SKUs. People will really love the PC version when it comes out. The wait will definitely be worth it. The PC version has just been pushed back, but it’s only by a couple of weeks, so hopefully no-one will be too upset about it. We’re working as hard as we can to get it out as soon as we can.”
