Despite four months of work trying to fix its problems, it appears Warner Bros. Interactive have finally thrown in the towel for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. In a post on the Steam forums, it was announced that those who bought the game through Steam will be able to get a refund, no matter how long they've played it for, so long as they make a claim before the end of the year.
Here's the statement in full:
"We are very sorry that many our customers continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. We worked hard to get the game to live up to the standard you deserve, but understand that many of you are still experiencing issues."
Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of how long you have played the product. You can also return the Season Pass along with the main game (but not separately). For those of you that hold onto the game, we are going to continue to address the issues that we can fix and talk to you about the issues that we cannot fix."
While this may be some relief to those who pre-ordered the game through Steam, especially as we've had deals under a tenner in recent months, those who bought from 3rd party retailers might not have the same luck. That said, Green Man Gaming have just confirmed in a Facebook post that they will be honouring refunds until the end of the year as well. We'll keep you updated on other retailers as we hear about it.
UPDATE: Get Games have also confirmed on Twitter that they will be honouring refunds.
