Recently, we reported the issues surrounding the release of the Batman: Arkham Knight on the PC, and WB Games just happen to announce that they are suspending the sale of the game on the said platform. Here’s what they said:
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 (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 at 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 the reason behind the suspension of sales is evidently because of the issues, we tip our hats off to WB Games for taking the game’s horrible PC launch into serious matter, as opposed to what other publishers have done when they screw up big time – releasing patches after patches that seems to fix but also break things in the process. We are looking at you, Ubisoft and EA.
Further news on when will the sales return is no where to be found, but we are expecting WB Games to fix most of the issues that afflicted the PC Gamers.
