An internal email sent to EB Games staff in Australia has suggested that Warner will not re-release a fixed version of Batman Arkham Knight on PC until the autumn.
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 email said, as reported by Kotaku.
The latest information from Warner is that the updates won’t be available until spring [which in Australia takes place in the Northern Hemisphere’s autumn]. 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.”
‘Spring/autumn’ is of course vague, meaning anything between two and four months. However, the decision to return stock to Warner does indicate that the wait will be significant.
The PC version of Arkham Knight was pulled shortly after release following reports of significant performance problems and missing features. One patch has been released for existing owners, but other fixes are still without an ETA.
