Warner Bros Suspends Sales of Batman: Arkham Knight Until the game is Fixed
Warner Bros has suspended Sales of Batman: Arkham Knight on Steam until the game is fixed. Warner Brothers says that Batman: Arkham Knight does not meet their quality standards and that it wants to do everything they can to make a better experience for PC users.
Below is a statement made by WB Games;
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 (http://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 athttps://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.
While it is great the Warner Bros is working on fixing the issues with the PC version of the game, but remember that these are the same people that said they would not fix bugs in their previous Batman game Arkham Origins, becouse they were busy making DLC for the game. Here is their statement from last year regarding Arkham Origins.
‘The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums,’
‘If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progression blocking bugs for players, not the minor glitches that do not prevent one from continuing to play. The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed.’
The silver lining here is the Steam now has a refund feature, so many of the games PC player base has the option to get a refund for the game, a fact which will hopefully force Warner Brothers to take post launch patches/ fixes a little more seriously.
Batman: Arkham Knight was one of the most highly anticipated games of this year, but on PC it has launched in a state which so bad that most early access have difficulty in matching it. Hopefully the game will be fixed with future patches, but until then I advise current owners to try and get a refund for this horrific port.
