At least another 2 months before Arkham Knight releases on PC

According to Kotaku Australia, staff from Australian retailer, EB Games, leaked internal email to them that states the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight will only be available in Spring. On Steam the release date is Fall 2015.

Spring in Australia is in two months, so that puts the release date somewhere in September.

"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.”

Batman: Arkham Knight released on June 23, so that means if the new PC release date is in September, then Warner Bros worked three months to fix issues they knew about before the game released the first time.

Warner Bros has not yet issued a new PC release date, they have, however, (kind of) taken responsibility for the mess.

Keeping with Batman: Arkham Knight news, the first DLC, "A Matter of Family" released earlier this week on PlayStation and Xbox One. According to critics, Batgirl's debut is somewhat of a disappointment.

"In fact the most notable novelty is simply that Harley Quinn is wearing her proper Animated Series costume, instead of dressing up as a stripper. But she’s only in the game for a few minutes at the end. If you want to buy the mission separately from the season pass you’ll have to wait till next week, when it’ll cost £5.79. We will say we don’t think it’s worth that, but value for money is always terribly subjective. So instead we’ll simply say that it’s not worth your time either." Metro

"Batgirl: A Matter of Family has a decent story, an impressive setting, and some respectable brawls and Predator fights, but it’s all so disappointingly brief and self-contained. There’s nothing meaningful to do after this roughly one-hour story chunk is complete except to roam the small area beating on respawning thugs for no reason. There’s just not enough here to get excited about." IGN 6.3/10

"A Matter of Family is worth playing for this small story slice, and to see Batgirl in her prime, but is ultimately an uneventful hour with the Joker. Again, if you love this series' storytelling, give it a look. If you are here for the gameplay, don't bother playing it." Gameinformer 4.5/5

"Warner Bros. is really employing an odd strategy with Batman: Arkham Knight's post-launch content and the relatively expensive $40 Season Pass. All that's been revealed so far beyond a bunch of throwaway content (skins, races) is a handful of bite-sized episodes such as this; it's a far cry from the competent Cold, Cold Heart add-on for Arkham Origins last year. While A Matter of Family may be worth it for hardcore Batgirl fans, WB will have to do a lot better than this to justify the cost of the pass." Destructoid 6.5/10

At least PC gamers know not to purchase the season pass.
