Everyone is quite aware of the fact the Batman Arkham Knight and Dishonored 2 suffered from big bugs at PC launch. And that console version of the games were better than the PC. Prey is the next biggest project of Arkane Studios and they have assured that the PC version of the game will live up to expectations and they are really giving their time to the PC version.
According to Creative director Raphael Colantonio and lead designer Ricardo Bare:
We’ve had a rough launch on the PC with Dishonored 2. You never really know what you’re going to see, especially on the PC with so many configurations. Unfortunately, it is what it is, it shipped but now it runs really well after some patches. Of course, we are paying attention to make sure that this time the PC version is really flawless when we ship.
A bit more Q&A time and also it’s a different engine so the constraints are different. In the case of Dishonored 2 we created a new engine really, even though it’s based on id Tech most of it has been redone. In the case of Prey we’re using CryEngine and it’s an engine that’s already shipped stuff before, so it’s not the same configuration. We are, nevertheless, aware of the problem; we were already but it got us by surprise, this time we’ll be paying more attention for sure.
