Those holding out for Warners and Rocksteady to fix the PC version of “Batman: Arkham Knight” before playing it, looks like you’ll be waiting a while.
Kotaku has reportedly obtained an email sent to EB Games staff in Australia which says the PC version of the game still requires a whopping several months of fixes. The e-mail says:
“As previously advised, we have stopped sales of Batman: Arkham Knight PC while Warner and Rocksteady work on addressing performance issues with the game. The latest information from Warner is that the updates won’t be available until Spring. Due to this we have made the difficult decision to recall all PC stock from stores to return to the vendor until an acceptable solution is released.”
Spring begins in Australia in September which suggests the PC version of the game probably won’t be available again until October/November. Those who pre-ordered the game on Steam and downloaded it before it was pulled from the Steam store can still play it, but won’t have access to the DLC that will be available to the PS4 and Xbox One console versions of the game.
In terms of the updates, Rocksteady Studios released a 67 MB update for PC a few weeks ago which fixed some of the more obvious glitches and solved some graphical problems. However that was just the start of a long laundry list of fixes and the studio has issued no further updates since.
There’s also no word on whether Warners and Rocksteady will do the obvious right thing to apologise in this case – as in when they do release the game on PC, include all the DLC free of charge.
