Batman: Arkham Knight Cancelled on Mac and Linux

Batman: Arkham Knight Cancelled on Mac and Linux

Batman: Arkham Knight has been cancelled on Mac and Linux according to a post on the game’s Steam forum yesterday.

The latest entry in the caped crusader’s gaming franchise was originally ported to Windows by Iron Galaxy Studios who had also ported Batman: Arkham Origins to PC in 2013.

The Mac and Linux versions were being ported by a separate studio, Feral Interactive who have ported many games to Mac and Linux including previous Arkham games, the Total War series and the XCOM series.

The developer posted on Steam:

“We are very sorry to confirm that Batman: Arkham Knight will no longer be coming to Mac and Linux. If you have pre-ordered Batman: Arkham Knight for Mac or Linux, please apply for a refund via Steam.”

The news may not be surprising to some after a tumultuous release for Batman: Arkham Knight on PC.

On June 24, 2015 Rocksteady announced it was suspending sales of the PC version due to widespread technical problems.

The game went on sale again in October 2015 but after numerous patches some technical problems still persisted, leading to Warner Bros. and Rocksteady offering anyone who purchased the game on PC full refunds for the rest of 2015.

The Mac and Linux ports were originally announced in March 2015 but were subsequently delayed in October of that year.

The game also received some criticism over its season pass before and after the game’s release.
