Batman Arkham Knight's PC issues (opens in new tab) have been so bad that the game's been withdrawn from sale (opens in new tab). It's not often that a publisher admits a game's so broken it stops selling it. Warner and Rocksteady have done the decent thing there and have been clear about trying to make things better, but will that have an impact on other formats? That's what a tweet from director Sefton Hill might be suggesting:
Thanks for the feedback! We hear you and are looking into it. Will keep you updated. (PC fixes come first) https://t.co/C3G5SKDArRJune 25, 2015
That was in reply to this tweet:
Big push for challenge maps/having allies playable in them for #ArkhamKnight. @Seftonhill @GazDeaves @RocksteadyGames guys make it so!June 25, 2015
Rocksteady previous stated it was working closely with Iron Galaxy, the studio behind the PC port, to fix the problems, with Hill tweeting this:
Totally supported decision to suspend PC version. We have our best engineers at Rocksteady working like crazy to help fix the issues ASAP.June 25, 2015
Hill's tweets suggests that this is now the priority. What knock on effects that might have on any pending updates or content remains to be seen. Obviously, the bulk of the DLC and season pass content will be largely complete, but if studio resources are being significantly diverted for emergency repairs anything that might have in the pipeline will obviously be on the backburner. If Rocksteady were planning anything in terms of patches or new features they'll likely be pushed back until the current situation is resolved.
