All issues that surrounds the recently released Batman Arkham Knight for PC resulted a lot of complaints from consumers and now Warner Bros. decided to suspend the game’s sale on the PC platform only. Started today, Steam’s store page has already closed its sale for Batman Arkham Knight and shipments will be suspended for the physical copy due to the game’s poor optimization. Batman Arkham Knight PC port was actually developed by a 12-man inexperienced development team, Iron Galaxy Studios, who were also responsible for technicality issues with Mortal Kombat X and Arkham Origins.
