Batman: Arkham Knight canceled for Mac, Linux

Refunds can be requested through Steam, says representative.

Warner Bros. has announced the cancellation of Batman: Arkham Knight for Mac and Linux platforms. Posting on Steam, a developer confirmed that the game will no longer be released on those platforms. Users who preordered these versions can apply for a refund through Steam.

The game's PC launch was plagued by a host of problems, which led to the game being voluntarily taken off the Steam store, and eventually restricted from retail sale in some regions. Following the emergence of reported issues, co-developer Rocksteady announced that they were working "like crazy" to fix the problems. Graphics card manufacturer Nvidia also pitched in to help fix issues.

The game recently got an update in the form of downloadable content (DLC) titled Challenge Pack #6 (check out our full post to see what the pack added to the game). Prior to the release of that Challenge Pack, Warner Bros. released the Season of Infamy DLC which added new missions and iconic DC Comics characters including The Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, Ra's al Ghul and Mr. Freeze.

Batman: Arkham Knight was originally released on June 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The PC version of the game was ported by a team at Iron Galaxy Studios, which previously worked on the PC port of Batman: Arkham Origins.
