PC players of the new Batman: Arkham Knight haven’t been having the best time being the Bat. The performance issues have been so severe that Warner Bros. has decided to pull the game altogether for that platform until things can be sorted out.
Warner Bros. announced their decision in a long post on their official forms which reads:
“We want to apologize to those of you who are experiencing performance issues with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC. We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards. We greatly value our customers and know that while there are a significant amount of players who are enjoying the game on PC, we want to do whatever we can to make the experience better for PC players overall.
“Thank you to those players who have already given valuable feedback. We are continuously monitoring all threads posted in the Official Batman: Arkham Knight Community and Steam forums, as well as any issues logged with our Customer Support (support.wbgames.com). If you purchased your copy of the game and are not satisfied with your experience, then we ask for your patience while these issues are resolved. If desired, you can request a refund at help.steampowered.com (Steam refund policies can be found here: http://store.steampowered.com/steam_refunds) or the retail location where you purchased the game.
“The Batman: Arkham fans have continually supported the franchise to its current height of success, and we want to thank you for your patience as we work to deliver an updated version of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC so you can all enjoy the final chapter of the Batman: Arkham series as it was meant to be played.”
Players have been reporting widespread performance issues with the game that range from glitch to unplayable. A few updates from Rocksteady have been released but they still haven’t fixed the overall issue. Console gamers are experience none of these issue however as the game has been enjoying rave reviews across the board.
Hopefully Rocksteady can sort the PC version out soon before Steam melts from all the hatred being posted on the game’s store page.
