So…this happened…

The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight has been suffering massive bugs, graphical glitches, and more, preventing most gamers from actually playing the title. At first, Rocksteady issued a statement saying they would work hard to fix these issues. Now though, after much complaining from the fanbse, Warner Bros. has actually decided to pull the game in order to not have any more unhappy customers, or at least until the game can be fixed. They posted the following statement onSteam:

“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. ”

This whole thing has left many gamers confused, angry and frustrated. Some players have only been able to play this series via PC. Every version of the past titles in the Arkham franchise have worked incredibly well on PC, save for Batman: Arkham Knight. Rocksteady did not work on the PC version, nor did WB Montreal, who did Arkham Origins for PC. Hopefully, this will be fixed so that gamers can finally be able to finish this fantastic series. The game is also currently available for PS4 and Xbox One.
