If you have been playing the console version of Warner Bros. and Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight, then it is clear that you are having a good time with the game. Many of you are probably already through the “Batgirl” DLC that was released last week. Unfortunately, if you have/had the PC version of the game you are only reading on how great the game is.
Earlier last week, a report came out that a patch for the PC version of the game would not make it to customers any earlier than September. Fortunately, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment took to the Steam page to say that an “interim” patch will make it out earlier. The bad news about that is that the patch will come out in August, as opposed to September.
WBIE said this on their Steam page:
As an update, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Rocksteady and our partners are targeting an interim patch update for existing players to be released in August. This update will address many of the issues we listed in our June 27 update. We will provide additional details as we finalize that interim patch over the coming weeks.
We would like to thank you for your continued patience and invaluable feedback. We are continuing to monitor and listen for any additional issues and are driving towards a full update for everyone as quickly as we possibly can.

If you managed to check out the comments below, it seems that many people are not happy with their answer. For once in my life of monitoring trolls, I would have to agree with them. If you did not have a decent version of the game available, you should not have released it to the public. As happens with gamers, when you wrong them, you can do whatever you think will help but they will either give you more bad press than you need or worse: walk away.
I think Warner Bros. and Rocksteady will have to pull out all the stops for a section of the gaming community that seems to be getting the shaft lately. PC gaming may not be as powerful of a market that the console version is, but this is not a great way to get people to move over. It should have been announced at a later time from the console version to make it right. Learn the lesson from Rockstar and they sell a ton of games.
