Publisher Warner Bros. have today suspended sales of the PC version of the recently released Batman: Arkham Knight, after the game suffered huge technical difficulties in the days following its release.
The publisher announced the suspension of the game via a post on their official forums, which reads: “We want to apologise 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”
“Thank you to those players who have already given valuable feedback. We are continuously monitoring all posted in the official Batman: Arkham Knight Community and Steam forums, as well as any issues logged with our customers support. If you purchased a copy of the game and are not satisfied with your experience, then we ask for your patience while these issues are resolved”
That’s a fairly extensive measure from Warner Bros., in what can only amount to damage control at this stage. The publisher has also pledged refunds to those who purchased the PC version of the game, saying “If desired, you can request a refund at help.steampowered.com”
Developer Rocksteady have already apologised for the issues experienced for the PC version of the game, but have also stated that they were not solely responsible for the port of the PC version of the game, as this was handed off to another studio, presumably by Warner Bros.
