Warner Bros. Suspends Sales Of Batman: Arkham Knight PC Version

The Dark Knight's final adventure through the Arkham Universe is shaping into his roughest—at least for PC users.

Shortly after Batman: Arkham Knight was released this week, PC users reported several bugs and glitches including sporadic freezes, frame rate-stutters, and audio glitches. And with the reports not seeming to slow down, developer Rocksteady Studios has temporarily pulled the game from the Steam digital market and encouraged store retailers to remove the game from their shelves. Additionally, those who have purchased the game on the Steam platform and are dissatisfied can refund their purchase.

With dissatisfaction towards Arkham Knight's performance growing, Warner Bros. Games addressed its fan base with a public statement.

As the game developer wrote:

Dear Batman: Arkham Knight PC owners,

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: https://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.

Hopefully, developer Rocksteady Studios and WB Games can work to amend Arkham Knight's glitches quickly. After all, if anyone's going to take down the Batman, it's going to be the Arkham Knight himself.
