PC development is a headache says Bethesda
Bethesda has echoed id technical boss John Carmack's sentiments over the difficulties of modern PC games development.
Carmack experienced a few frustrations after the launch of Rage due to extensive driver problems with the PC version which resulted in many PC gamers getting "a product that basically didn't work."
Pete Hines from Bethesda expressed similar concerns ahead of the launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, although he was quick to point out that the PC gamers will be "very pleased" with the finished article.
He said: "From a technical standpoint, yes, the PC is a headache. A million different possibilities of hardware, drivers, etc. As you saw with Rage, all it takes is some bad video card drivers and years of hard work comes off as 'buggy' when in fact it's a really solid, stable game."
Skyrim is out today on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
