Bad news for PC gamers. Kotaku Australia has reportedly reviewed an internal memo sent to EB Games staff that says the PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight won’t be fixed until the Australian spring, which could be anywhere from September to November. Also, EB Games decided to locally recall all of their Batman: Arkham Knight PC copies and return them back to Warner Bros. The game is still not available on Steam.
Here is what the memo says: “As previously advised, we have stopped sales of Batman: Arkham Knight PC while Warner and Rocksteady work on addressing performance issues with the game. The latest information from Warner is that the updates won’t be available until Spring. Due to this we have made the difficult decision to recall all PC stock from stores to return to the vendor until an acceptable solution is released.”
Kotaku Australia said they contacted Warner Bros. and will update their post with any reply, if they get one.
If this turns out to be true, then it’s just another huge blow to WB. Previous reports said that they already knew the PC version was broken for months. The gaming publisher certainly isn’t looking good right now.
