New, 138 comments

The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight won't be fixed until September or later, according to an internal EB Games email obtained by Kotaku Australia.

EB Games has removed all copies of the PC version of the game from store shelves and is sending them back to publisher Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, the site reports.

This is the memo sent to stores, according to the report:

"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 latest information from Warner is that the updates won't be available until Spring. 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 in Australia starts on September 1.

While both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game have received high praise, the PC version has been plagued with issues since launch.

The problems led to Warner pulling the game from the Steam storeRocksteady took over leadership of the fixes for the port, which was developed by Iron Galaxy Studios, shortly after the issues came to light.

Over the weekend, Warner apologized for the state of the PC game and promised an update soon.

"At this time, we believe we have identified a number of fixes for the larger issues that were affecting PC players at launch," the community manager for the game wrote at the time. "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."
