Batman: Arkham Knight released to critical acclaim in June, with reviewers declaring it a technical tour de force for the current generation of consoles.
Unfortunately, the PC version was a different story entirely, with technical glitches galore and unplayable performance on even the highest-end hardware. WB was forced to pull the game from the market entirely so that Rocksteady could somehow perform a miracle and get the game to an acceptable level of performance.
It seems that now they are just about ready to unveil the product of their work. A few weeks ago, an interim patch greatly improved performance on the PC version, and now WB has announced that the final patch will be ready by the end of October, alongside which the PC version will be released to stores again.
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.
Thanks again for your continued patience and support. We’ll be sure to update everyone as soon as the update is live.

For those that have been unable to play the game on PC – I’ve had it sitting un-downloaded in my Steam library since I got it with my GPU upgrade – hopefully your wait is almost over and you’ll be able to experience the Arkham series’ conclusion by the end of the month.
