After almost 4 month suspension on PC, the Batman Arkham Knight is finally coming home. The game will go on sales at the end of this month. Warner Bros. released an interim patch last month that fixed most of the issues that were plaguing the game, however, it still needed plenty of ironing and now it seems that the company is confident about putting it back on sales.
A broken game at launch isn’t something surprising but the fact that the game was pulled from the stores and the physical copies were called back is something we don’t get to see everyday. Batman Arkham Knight marks the end of the original Arkham series that was developed by Rocksteady and got positive reviews ever since the original Arkham Asylum came out.
You can checkout the official statement below:
As many of you know, we released a major patch for Batman: Arkham Knight PC a few weeks ago. While there were significant performance improvements made to the game, the teams are continuing to work on the additional updates that were outlined in our previous post. We expect these updates to be ready at the end of October, at which time the PC version will be made available for purchase. In addition, support for all DLC that has been released for the console versions will be in place.
Thanks again for your continued patience and support. We’ll be sure to update everyone as soon as the update is live.
– Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
The announcement was made on Batman Arkham Knight’s official Steam page. Considering how Warner Bros took its fair share of time ironing out the bugs we are hoping for a properly optimised version, but for now, only time will tell.
