Batman: Arkham Knight is easily the best Batman game ever made, and one of the best games of 2015 so far. But the PC version of Arkham Knight has been plagued with performance issues, prompting WB Games to pull it from sale.
The following statement was posted on the game’s official forums:
“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: 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.”
Batman: Arkham Knight’s PC version was suffering from unforgivable performance issues, struggling to maintain a steady frame rate even on low settings with a high-end card. It was also missing some of the more impressive graphic effects the console versions feature, such as rain appearing on Batman (and other characters). Hopefully they fix the PC version so everyone can experience how awesome the game really is.
