It’s Still Going To Be A Few Weeks Before You Can Buy Arkham Knight On PC

The Bat remains broken on PC, even though he’s on the mend. Warner Bros. says that Batman: Arkham Knight requires a few more weeks in rehab before returning to sale.

When the game was released in June, in suffered from myriad visual and technical issues on PC. These included significant frame rate drops on high-end machines, frequent crashes, and more.

An interim patch released in early September fixed a number of the visual issues, but more was left to be done. Rocksteady is still working on implementing SLI and Crossfire support, memory issues when using Windows 7, and improvements for the game running on Windows 10.

These fixes are targeted for the end of October. When the patch is released, Arkham Knight will be available for sale again. All previously released DLC on consoles will become available again.

Our Take
Batman: Arkham Knight on PC is nothing short of a disaster. Not only does this reflect poorly on Rocksteady and Iron Galaxy (which handled the port), but this will do long-term harm to Warner Bros. A year later, the memories of problems with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Driveclub are fresh in our mind. Customers aren’t likely to soon forget this situation either.
