The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight won’t be fixed until spring, according to an internal email sent to EB Games staff.

Kotaku got its hands on the email, which reads: “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.”

Development of the game’s PC version was outsourced by Rocksteady to an “external PC development partner”, and it launched with serious problems.

Amid a deluge of negative reviews on Steam, Warner Bros. suspended sales of the title, and later admitted that fixing the game “would take some time”.

Rocksteady has released a small fix for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, but none of the major performance issues have been addressed. Sales of the game are still suspended on Steam.

A couple of QA testers then claimed Warner knew the game was in “a horrible state” before it shipped, and Warner announced that it had delayed the game’s DLC on PC until the core game was up to scratch.

The console version, however, is pretty stellar.
