In a series of tweets, Rocksteady senior technical artist Lee Devonald joined the conversation on the link Gotham Knights. Initially, his focus is on solving what 60fps means and the compromises required to achieve it. He says that’s especially important considering “we have a current-gen console that’s not much better than the previous generation.” He answers a question about the hardware bottleneck and specifically mentions the Xbox Series S GPU, where cross-platform games must “optimize for the lowest performance.”

Another follow-up tweet from Devonald showed how little the senior developer thinks of the Xbox Series S. He says there’s “an entire generation of games, broken by that potato.” However, the reason why a generation is broken is not just because the Xbox Series S exists. Devonald explains it Microsoft “they won’t let you run one without the other.” It’s this requirement, which must be met for a cross-platform game to run on any Xbox consoles, paired with the Xbox Series S’s comparably less powerful GPU, that explains why Devonald believes a generation is broken.

To Devonald’s credit, he has since apologized for his posts regarding the Xbox Series S. Twitter users pointed out that Devonald’s call for respect for developers is hypocritical if he does so while attacking Microsoft’s Xbox Series S developers in the same breath. He also clarifies that while Rocksteady has the same parent company as Gotham Knights developer WB Games Montrealhe is completely unfamiliar with the project and knows nothing about its development or what might limit the game.

A long post by Devonald to close his thoughts and withdraw from the conversation is not mentioned Xbox Series Sbut says that any problems there might be with the current generation of consoles “probably aren’t the reason behind the decisions”. Gotham Knights‘ 30 fps. He says he wanted to educate himself about “some of the temptations that happen in development and that development teams should “always be free to make their the game their way.” Furthermore, he reiterates that any level abuse or harass developers is wrong and needs to stop, something we should all agree with.
