Warner claims, that Rocksteady is now leading its “team of developers and partners as we work on the PC performance issues that players have been encountering.”
“The work is significant and while we are making good progress on improving performance, it will take some time to ensure that we get the right fixes in place. “
Warner Bros continues to list the key areas where its allocating resources in order to improve the experience:
- Support for frame rates above 30FPS in the graphics settings menu
- Fix for low resolution texture bug
- Improve overall performance and framerate hitches

- Address full screen rendering bug on gaming laptops
- Improvements to system memory and VRAM usage
- NVIDIA SLI bug fixes

The first patch for the PC version of Batman Arkham Knight, which became available yesterday, fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion, but did not improve performance nor did it remove the 30fps cap. Although that is promised to follow along with overall performance improvements as listed above.
The release notes of the first PC patch are as follows:
- Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game
- Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
- Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
