'Batman: Arkham Knight' Has PC Problems; Video Game Yanked From Stores

By    |   Friday, 26 Jun 2015 08:29 AM

Video game developers have pulled the PC version of "Batman: Arkham Knight" from retail outlets this week after users complained of technical glitches, an event that highlights the difficulty in releasing a game for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One simultaneously.

Freezing screens, lagging graphics, and audio stutters were reported by the thousands at the webstore Steam, prompting the game's producer, Rocksteady, to release a statement of apology, and eventually pull the game.

"We’re aware that some users are reporting performance issues with the PC version of 'Batman: Arkham Knight.' This is something that Rocksteady takes very seriously. We are working closely with our external PC development partner to make sure these issues get resolved as quickly as possible," said the company.

BGR.com reported via Yahoo News that the new Batman game was not built to run on a PC in the first place, and that Rocksteady hired an outside firm, Iron Galaxy Studios, to shoehorn the game into compatibility with the platform.

Clearly, that port wasn't up to snuff, and now Rocksteady is offering a refund to all of those plagued with glitches.
