Arkane Studios has released the fourth update for the PC version of Dishonored 2. According to the development team, this patch features various optimization improvements and tweaks. And that’s its complete changelog.
No seriously, we are not kidding. Arkane Studios has just claimed that this patch includes various optimizations and nothing more.
We’ll be sure to put this patch to the test this weekend in order to find out whether overall performance has been improved at all.
Contrary to Arkane’s latest title, PREY, Dishonored 2 suffered from major performance and optimization issues, as well as some noticeable framepacing issues.
It’s worth noting that these games are powered by different engines, and that the previous PC patch for Dishonored 2 was released 2.5 months ago. During these months, Arkane Studios focused on PREY’s release, despite the fact that Dishonored 2 still under-performed on the PC.
We don’t expect Arkane to significantly improve things as Turn10 did with Forza Horizon 3, however we at least hope that some of the game’s issues have been addressed!
