The leaderboard is part of Batman: Arkham Knight's Gotham's Greatest meta-game, which collects and displays performance data in order to rank the best Batmen.

Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's last big game release, Mortal Kombat X, also had similar problems immediately following its launch.

Batman: Arkham Knight's PC problems, meanwhile, has caused far more significant issues, leading its publisher to suspend sales on Valve's Steam platform and ask UK retailer Game to stop selling physical copies.

Rocktsteady Studios has said it supported Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's decision to pull the PC version from Steam and has its best engineers working to fix the game's problems.

"This is something that Rocksteady takes very seriously," it said. "We are working closely with our external PC development partner to make sure these issues get resolved as quickly as possible."

Graphics card giant Nvidia is also offering its QA and technical assistance to help address the PC versions problems. Nvidia promoted numerous graphical enhancements that would be available to Batman: Arkham Knight players on PC using one its graphics cards.

Additionally, it offered a free copy of the game with every purchase of its GeForce GTX 970 and 980.
