The issues surrounding the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight has been well-documented. In fact things got so bad that sales of the PC version of the game had to be suspended until the developers were able to patch the game where it would be able to play properly without any issues.
According to Warner Bros., it seems that a fix for the game will not be expected until the fall, but the good news is it looks like things are well on their way. A recent update on Steam has revealed that the game’s developers are getting ready to push out the first interim patch for the game in the coming weeks, but no specific dates were mentioned.
The game’s community manager Yorik writes, “The teams have been working hard to address the issues with the PC version of the game. We are happy to confirm that we are now putting the first interim patch into testing. If all goes well, we expect to issue the patch in the next few weeks.”
The patch, if it works, should address numerous problems such as frame rate hitches. It is also expected to improve performance on all GPUs and has also been optimized for system memory and VRAM usage. Some bugs have also been squashed, which pretty much sounds like what gamers have been asking for.
However it should be noted that the post mentions that this is the “first” interim patch, suggesting that there could be more on its way, but hopefully this patch should fix a major issues moving forward.
