Holy pants PC port Batman

Warner Bros has said "that's all folks" to the super buggy PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight.

The studio has decided to suspend sales of Batman: Arkham Knight and removed its buy option from Steam.

The company has issued a statement saying that it is really sorry about the performance issues with the PC version of Batman.

"We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards. We greatly value our customers and know that while there are a significant amount of players who are enjoying the game on PC, we want to do whatever we can to make the experience better for PC players overall.

"Thank you to those players who have already given valuable feedback. We are continuously monitoring all threads posted in the Official Batman: Arkham Knight Community and Steam forums, as well as any issues logged with our Customer Support (http://support.wbgames.com/). If you purchased your copy of the game and are not satisfied with your experience, then we ask for your patience while these issues are resolved. If desired, you can request a refund at https://help.steampowered.com (Steam refund policies can be found here: http://store.steampowered.com/steam_refunds) or the retail location where you purchased the game.

"The Batman: Arkham fans have continually supported the franchise to its current height of success, and we want to thank you for your patience as we work to deliver an updated version of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC so you can all enjoy the final chapter of the Batman: Arkham series as it was meant to be played."

The game's rating on Steam is "Mostly Negative," while the previous Batman: Arkham games are all in the "Positive It is just as well that Steam now offers refunds as they are going to need it with Arkham Knight.

The game had a 30FPS framerate cap, missing textures (ones that do appear on console) and game stuttering. It was basically a pants PC port.
