Batman: Arkham Knight’s shoddy PC version is still a few months away from being fixed, and the wait is prompting stores to return their physical stock to Warner Bros.
In an internal email sent to EB Games staff members in Australia, it is claimed that Warner have suggested that the PC version of Arkham Knight won’t be ready until Spring. EB Games have already removed the game from store displays, but will now be sending all copies back to the publisher.
The email reads: “As previously advised, we have stopped sales of Batman: Arkham Knight PC while Warner and Rocksteady work on addressing performance issues with the game. The latest information from Warner is that the updates won’t be available until Spring. Due to this we have made the difficult decision to recall all PC stock from stores to return to the vendor until an acceptable solution is released.”
It’s worth noting that due to their global location, Australia will experience the spring season in a couple of months, as opposed to those of us in the northern hemisphere who won’t experience spring for another half a year. So the fix is not quite as far off as it may initially sound, but there is still months of waiting to endure.
The wait for the fix has meant that WB Games have suspended DLC for the PC, delaying the recently released Batgirl A Matter of Family mission until presumably the date of the game’s re-launch.
Thanks, Kotaku AU.
