DC Universe “Gotham” Release Notes: July, 2019

DC Universe version 2.XYZ is codenamed “GOTHAM,” home to Joker, Harley Quinn, and seemingly endless corruption. As Superman notes, “it’s like someone built a nightmare out of metal and stone.” The GCPD does their best in Gotham Central, as do our developers!

This release we focused on Offline Video and UI cleanup on iOS, 4K SDR support on Roku, and SDCC QR Code support on Web. Plenty of Bugs were squashed.
