Progress is progress
A community manager for Warner Bros. has taken to the Batman: Arkham Knight forums to post an update on status of the PC version of the game, also announcing that DLC has been delayed for the PC version and that the internal review process has been modified.
There’s nothing too shocking here, and sounds like Warner Bros. has finally realized that releasing broken PC games isn’t in anyone’s best interest, especially when Steam has a refund policy. The PC version’s DLC delay was mostly expected at this point, as releasing it with the game in its current state would surely only alienate fans whose PC the game refuses to run smoothly on.
Addressing the PC performance issues is still our top priority and at this time, we believe we have identified a number of fixes for the larger issues that were affecting PC players at launch. These fixes are currently being implemented into the game and once we have been able to do some initial testing, we’ll have a better idea on the status of our progress. We’ll provide an update on how things are developing next week.
We can also assure you that because of this latest launch, we are modifying the internal review process for all of our games. For those who are waiting for the updated version of the game on PC, please know that we are working on this every day. For the players who are continuing to play Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, fixes are continually being made to the game as we await the final updated version.
Our continued focus on getting the right PC fixes in place for the main game has had an impact on the development of all DLC content for the PC version of the game. This means that the Batman: Arkham Knight – Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC will not be available on July 14th for those who are currently playing the PC version of the game. We apologize for the delay and only want to make sure that any content that we offer is up to the standards that PC players expect.
