Akrham Knight has had some chaotic time with its PC port. A myriad of glitches and frame-rate drops has caused the game to receive a wave of negative reviews on its Steam store page. In response to this, Warner Brothers has decided to suspend the sale of Arkham Knight for the PC, as well as releasing the following statement on their Steam community page.
“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 (http://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 athttps://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.”
While it is unfortunate that Arkham Knight’s PC port is having so many issues, it’s nice to see that they care first about delivering a working product. Would’ve been nicer if they had done more testing a week or two ago, but in an age where most half-baked games are kept around to be sold for a quick buck, it’s a good sign to see the developer own up to their problems and try to fix them. Have you had issues with Batman: Arkham Knight? Or were you one of the lucky few whose game worked solidly?
