Deadly Premonition 2 developers reportedly have "no plans" to fix the poor framerate

What you see is what you get.

Reviews are now being published for the upcoming launch of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise, and one of the most common complaints seems to be the extremely poor framerate among other technical problems.

It seems that any hope for a future patch have been crushed, as a PR representative for the game reportedly reached out to YouTuber Jim Sterling to confirm there are "no plans to fix" the performance issues.

I've never been one to have the "it's so bad it's good" mentality. If it's bad, it's just bad. This, and the original game, gets a hard pass from me.

Another way of saying it is if you're into the joke or not. Since that seems to be what a lot of players seem to want to believe.

It's not a bug, it's a feature Smile

I never took anything Jim Sterling said seriously before and I don't plan to now. The game might be crap but I wouldn't rely on a word he says.

I haven’t played the original, but its defenders will say it has a charm and uniqueness that shines through despite its shortcomings. Or perhaps even because of some of them, depending on who you ask. With that being said, bad frame rate is something that’s way tougher for me to tolerate than “dated” looking graphics.

There aren't a lot of games I couldn't enjoy because of performance issues. And while it slightly brings down the enjoyment I get from the game it won't ruin the game completely. I've enjoyed the first one a lot, despite the bad performance on the Switch.

At 52:35 swery talks about the framerate and says that there won't be a patch at release but he will fight with the producer to get something done.
