It’s a disaster.
You probably heard it by now, especially if you’re a PC player. The Batman: Arkham Knight for PC has seriously frame rate problems, and the entire game keeps on skipping frames. The situation is so bad, publisher Warner Bros is taking drastic actions by suspending PC sales of Arkham Knight until the technical problem are resolved.
Check out the post from the publisher:
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 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.
It’s a big move for Warner Bros to remove Batman: Arkham Knight from virtual shelf, as the game is guaranteed to be one of the biggest sale of the year. However, this also means the situation is that bad. It’s also very nice the post above gives out instructions on how to get refund.
Right now, I’m just glad I got the game for PS4. Our Batman: Arkham Knight review will be ready next Tuesday.
