Batman Arkham Knight might be broken on PC until September

Batman Arkham Knight might just be broken on PC until September, according to a leaked retailer memo.

It looks like ongoing problems with Batman Arkham Knight on PC might not be fixed any time soon, if this leaked retailer memo is anything to go by.

An internal email sent to EB Games staff was sent to Kotaku Australia, which states that the game won’t be fixed until the Australian Spring – or our autumn.

“As previously advised, we hve stopped sales of Batman: Arkham Knight PC while Warner and Rocksteady work on addressing performance issues with the game,” it reads. “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.”

So we’re essentially looking at the fact Warner Bros Interactive doesn’t expect a fix until September at the earliest, but it could be that one doesn’t arrive until November.

It’s also a really bad sign that the retailer has made the decision to return all stock to Warner Bros until it finds a solution to the PC issues.

Steam sales of the latest Batman title are also still suspended.

The PC version of Batman Arkham Knight was pulled from sale shortly after release thanks to widespread reports of perforamcne issues with the game.

There were also missing graphical features, had massive framerate issues and other bugs that made it nearly impossible to play on PC.

Developer Rocksteady Studios has acknowledged the issues and pledged to work on a fix with its development teams, alongside Nvidia and AMD to resolve them.
