Things just keep getting worse for Batman: Arkham Knight. After a slew of player complaints and a sort of tone-deaf suggested settings post issued earlier today, developer Rocksteady and publisher WB Interactive have apparently had enough for the moment. In another official forum post made this evening, WB Interactive announced that it's suspending sales of the PC version of the game while the numerous wrinkles are ironed out.
Here's the core of the statement:
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.
WB Interactive further encourages those who are having issues with the game to wait for the promised improvements—or to request a refund through Steam or the retailer where the game was purchased. It's hard to watch a game go through such a troubled launch, but at least WB Interactive is owning up to the problems. We'll keep an eye on Arkham Knight as this saga continues to unfold.
