Batman: Arkham Knight will soon be made available for purchase for PC gamers once again.
The game launched back in June of this year for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, the PC version of the title was unplayable for most. The bugs pushed Warner Bros. Interactive and Rocksteady to pull the PC version of the game from virtual and physical shelves and work on fixes.
Now, those who own the game already will see a patch by the end of this month. Even further, once those updates are out, the game will be made available for sale once more.
The news comes Warner Bros. on the official Steam news page for the game. Here’s a chunk of what they write.
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.
Consumers? They’re not happy. All it takes is a 30 second trip to the comment section where that writing comes from, which you’ll find linked in the source below, and you’ll see plenty of foul words and images fired towards WB.
They knowingly released and sold a broken game, folks. The vulgarity probably isn’t warranted, but the animosity sure is. Will PC gamers trust WB moving forward? That’s hard to say.
