If you’ve been holding your breath to play “Batman: Arkham Knight” on your MacBook or your Linux machine, then it’s probably high time you let it go. A developer has just confirmed that the title for both Mac and Linux platforms is unfortunately cancelled.
If you’ve been following how “Batman: Arkham Knight” has been faring, then you’ll know by now to avoid the PC port like the plague. It’s riddled with loads of issues, which lead to the developers taking it off from the Steam store and issuing a full refund until the end of last year. While co-developer Rocksteady was hard at work to fix the issues plagued the PC port and graphics card giant NVIDIA chipping in, it was still a broken mess of a game.
With the game’s track record, unsurprising news was bound to follow. Fast forward to today and the promised Mac and Linux ports are no longer coming. A developer took it to Steam and announced the sad but expected news, and those who have already pre-ordered “Batman: Arkham Knight” for their respective platforms will still be able to apply for a refund on Steam.
Those that wish to play “Batman: Arkham Knight” will just have to settle for the console versions of the game. Of course, the superior performance of gaming PCs would have easily brought the title to its full glory if it just wasn’t riddled with issues.
Originally released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, “Batman: Arkham Knight” is one of the top-tier games that came out last year. The PC version was ported by Iron Galaxy Studios, which was also responsible for the “Batman: Arkham Origins” for the PC.
Warner Bros. “Mortal Kombat X” for the PC almost suffered the same fate. While it’s not exactly as disastrous as “Arkham Knight,” technical problems still made it a mess for gamers.
