Iron Galaxy Responsible for Killer Instinct PC Port
John Williamson / 1 year ago
Iron Galaxy, developer of the atrocious Batman: Arkham Knight PC version, have been commissioned to produce Microsoft’s latest love letter to PC Gamers. With a team of only 12 people, Iron Galaxy are expected to construct a solid PC port offering good keyboard controls, support for professional Fight Sticks and enhanced visuals. In a direct AMA session, the CEO addressed concerns and pleaded:
“This is an amazing opportunity to work on a game and a genre we are super passionate about,”
“Before we were ever talking about this, I was a fan of the game. And to get to now take it over and start with this great base, and expand it and put new stuff on top of it, everyone in the company is super pumped up, and we can’t wait to show people what we’re going to be doing down the road,”
While their intentions may be admirable, it’s difficult to ignore the colossal mess of the Batman: Arkham Knight port and does little to alleviate concerns that Microsoft perceives PC Gaming as an afterthought. Furthermore, Killer Instinct is a fluid, combo-based, exhilarating beat-em-up requiring a minimum and solid rate of 60fps. If the optimization is sub-par, Iron Galaxy will be lambasted for it. However, I can’t see how their reputation can become worse given the furore surrounding Batman: Arkham Knight.
Perhaps, this is the perfect opportunity for Iron Galaxy to redeem themselves but I can understand why anyone would be highly suspicious of the final product.
