Batman: Arkham Knight PC Version Sales Suspended
Only launched two days ago, the latest Batman game in the Arkham series, Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham Knight, has had its sales suspended for the PC version. After a flood of complaints about performance issues, glitches, bugs and poor graphics quality, WB Games has officially pulled the title for sale on Steam and has issued the following statement on their support forums to consumers.
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 athelp.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.
This move has no bearing on the console versions of the game, while the SteamOS, Linux and Mac versions are still slated for release in Fall 2015.
