Following the ridiculous amount of bugs in the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, the studio Warner Bros. has decided to temporarily suspend the sales of the game on Steam. According to the Steam page of the game, the notice says:
Sales of Batman: Arkham Knight have been temporarily suspended while Warner Brothers works to address performance issues
This is after the game has received 68 percent negative reviews on Steam from a total of 8,872 reviews. For a game this big, this is a slap on the face. Yesterday we reported how the game was developed by some Iron Galaxy Studio and has been developed by only a team of 12 people. However, why Warner Bros did it is still a bit confusing.
Check out the official press release by Warner Bros. below.
