Warner Bros. Interactive has decided to suspend sales on the pc version of Batman: Arkham Knight from store shelves as well as the digital version previously available on Steam. Since the game’s launch on June 23, PC users have been reporting various issues with the game,which include crashes and extremely unstable frame rates, even when the PC game has a cap of 30fps.
Rocksteady studios head Sefton Hill has confirmed the suspicions of players. The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight was ported from the console version. The port was done by Iron Galaxy Studios. Iron Galaxy has much more experience with console games than it does working with PC titles. The last PC game Iron Galaxy studios worked on was the port of Batman: Arkham Origins, which many players still remember had a lot of issues.
Earlier, Warner Bros. Interactive made a public statement on the matter, which you can read below:
Meanwhile, the console version of Batman: Arkham Knight continues to gain praise from PS4 and Xbox One players for its incredible gameplay and detailed open world.
